Paraoptometrics are allied health personnel who assist optometric physicians in providing the highest level of vision care to patients. Front office procedures, chair-side assisting, pre-testing, contact lens instruction, frame styling, and vision therapy are just a few of the many duties paraoptometrics perform.
Together with the optometric physician, paraoptometrics play a valuable role in providing quality eye care to each patient who enters the office. Paraoptometrics who make a career of their job strive to upgrade their skills and abilities in order to assist the doctor in providing the highest level of professional care possible. The New Jersey Society of Optometric Physicians Paraoptometric Section together with the AOA Paraoptometric Section helps its members achieve their goals.
