I went in for a medical exam. Dr. Mendez was very kind and took my eye care very seriously. She ran all of the necessary tests, but the doctor that saw me afterward - Dr. Nassir I believe his name was, was very rude. Denied there was anything wrong with my eyes before checking the test results run by Dr. Mendez. And ultimately said "if theres still something wrong in a month, come back". So instead of starting treatment for what every other doctor has already theorized, I either have to schedule another appointment, or just let my condition worsen after a month.
What is an optometrist?
An optometrist specializes in examining the eye for vision or eye abnormalities, and they can prescribe and dispense contact lenses to treat blurry vision, far- and near-sightedness, and more. They also prescribe medication for certain eye diseases. They can diagnose diseases that affect the eyes, such as diabetes, during regular exams. An optometrist will often refer patients in need of advanced treatment to an ophthalmologist.
