Would you please tell me what do you call a doctor whose concern is the eyes?Is it correct to say (eye doctor)?If so is it the same for other doctors like (skin doctors)?
Thanks in advance,
Eye specialist is a widely used term, especially for a doctor whose advice a person with an eyesight problem seeks; a medical term for a doctor who deals with the various eye / eyeball diseases is ophtalmologist.
Eye doctor: ophtalmologist
Skin doctor: dermatologist
Optician is another example, though not a doctor per se.
An optomotrist gives eye exams and prescribes (and fits) glasses and contact lenses.
An opthamologist can do the above and also treats diseases of the eye.
