Finding an Eye Doctor

If you don’t already visit your eye doctor regularly, make an appointment immediately for detection of AMD. If you don’t have an optometrist, you can find one in your own area using our Optometrist Locator.

Please note: Optometrists and ophthalmologists are both eye doctors. Only ophthalmologists are trained as medical doctors and can perform surgery. Optometrists do not require a referral from a specialist and will often accept walk-in patients. If you require further assessment and/or treatment, your optometrist might refer you to an ophthalmologist.
