Optometry (Eye Care)


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Eye Care Specialists diagnose and treat eye diseases and conditions.

Marshfield Clinic Health System optometrists, ophthalmologists and opticians work together to correct vision problems, diagnose and treat eye diseases, and protect your eyesight. 


Our optometrists are doctors of optometry and are often your first point of contact for your eye care.

They provide regular eye examinations to help keep your eyes healthy. They also identify vision and health problems, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.

Optometrists can help address your vision concerns by prescribing glasses and contact lenses.


A medical doctor who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the eye is an ophthalmologist.

They can perform advanced surgical procedures to correct conditions and disorders that threaten your eyesight.

Ophthalmologists treat problems related to cataracts, glaucoma and diabetes. They also treat issues related to the retina, cornea, neurological diseases and more.
