Amblyopia

Hi,
I am new in U.S. So everything is new and very different here, especially with doctors and so on.
I have since early youth Amblyopia (left eye) and now I need new lenses and glasses. But how is it here, where to go? Do I have to go to an eye doctor or only to an optometrist? Or anyone else? Thanks for your answers.
Stefanie

Eye exams in the USA are done by eye MD ophthalmologists physicians and non-physician, non-MD optometrists. You can find an Eye MD near you at www.getyeyesmart.org
