How do you become an Ophthalmologist?

Ophthalmologists are responsible for your medical and surgical eye care. They went to medical school, did internship and community service and then completed a 4-to-4,5-year specialist degree in ophthalmology. Those who have a specific area of interest do additional training in specific subspeciality areas such as glaucoma, refractive, cornea, retina or paediatrics. Although they can still take care of all areas of ophthalmology, this added training and knowledge prepares them to take care of more complex conditions in a specific area.
