Training to become an ophthalmologist requires years of specialized medical study into the intricacies of the eye. "That training really does qualify us to be the pre-eminent eye care provider," says Tamara R. Fountain, MD. "We do everything, from contact lenses to medical procedures to surgical procedures."

Dr. Fountain is an ophthalmologist — an eye medical doctor and surgeon — and a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
