Tips for Finding an Eye Doctor

Here are five ways you can find an eye doctor who is right for you:

  • Ask family or friends which eye doctor they use.
  • Request a referral from your family doctor.
  • Have a hospital or university medical center nearby? Call the department of ophthalmology or optometry for information.
  • Contact state and county academies, associations, or societies of optometrists and ophthalmologists, and ask if they can help you.
  • You may also get a list from your health plan or health insurance company.
