Optometry also called 'science of eye' is a dynamic health care profession that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of issues relating to vision and eye health. Limiting the scope of optometry to the supplying of eye equipments such as spectacles and lenses is a pure fallacy as Optometrists undertake much more challenges beyond this, including screening of various signs of diseases, giving specialist advice & treatment, ocular hygiene and more.
