Sightbox does not work with ophthalmologists, who are medical doctors. Ophthalmologists specialize in surgery, infection, and eye disease, although it is within the scope of practice of some ophthalmologists to conduct contact lens exams.
Sightbox works exclusively with optometrists, who focus on eye health and vision correction. An optometrist may be able to provide a referral to an ophthalmologist due to surgical or other eye disease concerns, but please be aware that Sightbox does not pay for any of these services. Please consult your medical insurance for more information.
