Probably need my first pair of glasses. Haven't had my eyes checked in years. Should I see an opthamologist or an optometrist?

My vision is not what it used to be. I look at a computer all day and I'm starting to get eyestrain. Night driving is also more difficult. Should I see an opthamologist just because I haven't had a checkup in awhile? Or is that overkill?
What fun stuff should I know about getting my first pair of glasses? (I'm sure I don't want contacts.)
I'm 35, no known health conditions that would affect vision. I have health/vision insurance.
