A specialist in vision care is called an ophthalmologist. Ophthalmologists, in contrast to optometrists and opticians, are MDs or DOs with specialised training and expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of eye and visual disorders. A skilled ophthalmologist can provide comprehensive eye care, including sight services, eye exams, operative and medical eye care, as well as the evaluation and treatment of illness and visual difficulties brought on by additional ailments, such as diabetes.

These are ailments that can harm your cornea and impair your vision.
An eye disorder called diabetes-related retinopathy damages the blood vessels in your retina.
Farsighted people can see distant objects, but they struggle to concentrate on nearby items. LASIK surgery is occasionally used to address farsightedness.
You may see "floaters" or light bursts due to this frequent age-related eye issue.
