An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

I have never been to a doctor that orders so much testing. I went in for dryness of my eyes and I had so much testing (Injection of dye in my arm for diabetes, which I don't have) that my bill was astronomical. This doctor is a farce. He did not address my problem or discuss the results of the tests. He only gave me lubricant drops. Wow! All of that for $400+bill.
