I have a swollen eyelid. Do I need to see an opthamologist for this or a general practitioner?
I am not sure if an opthamologist is more appropriate treat my eyelid. Please help.


opthamologist, call the opthal. office first, and explain it to the nurse, she's tell you who to see.. Unless HMO requires a referral by your GP.

First port of call would best be your local doctor as it could be as simple as an eye infection that could be treated by your doctor. Even if your Doc cant treat it , they will refer you onto an opthamologist anyway.

U can start with ur local GP might be something small, then see what he recomends.

This can be a very temporary condition. I would call my doctor. He/she could tell you if a specialist is needed. An office call is required if you don't have a close relationship with a gp.

What's your eyelid swollen for? What happened?
When my son scratched my eye (lense) with a stick, I went to WalMart eye center (walk-ins welcome). She said she usually doesn't check out "injuries" without a doctor's referral. But, with my injury, it was across the lense of my eye, so she treated me.

The cost of an office visit with a GP is considerable less than an appointment with an ophthalmologist and the wait to see an ophthalmologist can be excessively long.

I suggest you see a GP. If it is a serious eye condition, s/he will refer you to an ophthalmologist but it probably isn't necessary.

It would be easier and most likely faster and cheaper to see a GP for this. Unless you have injured your eye, then it is most likely that you have some type of infection, such as conjunctivitis. Your regular physician is more than capable of diagnosing and treating this. If your physician is stumped, or feels you need help from a specialist, he can help you get an appointment. You can usually get in to see a specialist when another doctor's office is calling and referring you to them.
