Dr. Richardson specializes in the following:
An optometrist is a doctor of optometry (OD) who is trained in the study of vision. The optometrist performs routine eye care, conducts eye examinations and prescribes corrective lenses. Optometrists also diagnose and prescribe treatment for eye diseases. Treatment may include medication in the form of drops, pills or injections. The optometrist should not be confused with an ophthalmologist, who is a medical doctor trained to perform corrective eye surgery, or opticians, who are trained to grind lenses but not licensed to examine or treat patients. Optometry is tightly regulated by boards that vary by state. An optometrist can study further to focus on subspecialties, such as pediatric optometry, ocular disease and noninvasive vision therapy.
