I wear glasses, Scott...does that count?
GREAT bunch of interviews in the latest batch, BTW. Nice job---many thanks.
What's an Optometrist in English ?
Is it an under qualified ophthalmologist, or rather his or her shop assistant ?

An ophthalmologist is a Medical doctor that specializes in eye care.
Scott, I used to print for an ophthalmologist who coincidentally is one hell of a fine photographer. I have two of his (my) prints hanging in my living room (he signed them for me).
It's been fifteen years but I recall that he was very friendly. If you would like his contact information, feel free to P.M. me.
In the UK an Ophthalmologist is someone who tests and treats your eyes, diagnosing medical complaints, prescribing corrective spectacles etc, i.e. what you call an Optometrist. He or she then refers you to an Ophthalmic surgeon or other doctor if they detect a medical condition.

Ahh, UK/US terminology differentials!
Same confusion reigns in my field. In the UK, an anaesthetist is a medical doctor who specializes in the perioperative care of surgical patients and in the administration of anaesthetics. That same person in the US is an anesthesiologist; while an anesthetist is an advanced-practice nurse (somewhat analogous to a nurse practitioner) who administers anesthetics with a greater or lesser degree of consultation with a physician, as required by the state in which s/he practices.
Now, what was Scott's original question?
I think he had something in his eye.
"While you're out there smashing the state, don't forget to keep a smile on your lips and a song in your heart!"
I am looking for a eye doctor to talk about photographer that need eye correction, the use of diopters, shoot with or with glasses and that kind of eye related stuff.

If any body knows of such a photography minded eye doctor please let me know.
Does nobody use the title optician any more?
Isn't an optician anyone who sells glasses?
But let's not leave out the orthoptist!
