You Deserve Better Access
to Quality Eye Care
THE SOLUTION IS CLEAR
Legislation is needed that would expand the range of services that trained Doctors of Optometry across the state can provide - allowing them to perform several additional procedures that treat common conditions of the eye and eyelids. It will mean better access to the best eye care for our patients.
Your Doctors of Optometry
Nebraska’s largest eye care profession includes more than 330 Doctors of Optometry serving in more than 80 communities across the state.
As primary eye care providers, Doctors of Optometry are trained to examine, diagnose, treat and manage disorders that affect the eye or vision. They are an integral part of the health care team, earning their doctoral degree just as dentists, podiatrists and other doctors do. Optometry is one of the only doctoral-level health care professions to require continuing education.
