 "Eye Doctors"

My wife's optometrist examined her eyes yesterday to determine the cause
of "pigment disbursion." He suggested that it placed her in a higher
risk group for early glaucoma.

I was under the impression that optometrists were trained and licensed
only to do refractions and perscriptions, so I asked her to ask him. He
claimed that that changed about 10 years ago, and that now, optometrists
can do everything an ophthalmogist can do except for "invasive surgery."

Is that true? (We're in NJ, if that makes any difference).
