Ophthalmologist-Optometrist Collaboration

Texas embraces a physician-led, team-based approach to patient care, which features collaboration among physicians, optometrists and opticians – each playing an important and unique role based on experience and training.

There is really no limit to the amount of cooperation possible when both professions work hand-in-hand to provide excellent patient care.

Glaucoma is a serious, complicated disease caused by fluid buildup in the eye that can lead to blindness if not properly overseen by a physician. Working together, the optometrist and ophthalmologist can manage this devastating disease.
