Occupational Vision Manual

Occupational optometry is the portion of optometric practice that is concerned with the efficient and safe visual functioning of an individual within the work environment. It encompasses more than just the prevention of occupational eye injuries, although that certainly is a major component. It also includes vision assessments of workers/patients, taking into account their specific vision requirements and the demands these requirements place upon them.

Optometrists provide occupational vision services at three general areas or levels: primary care, eye safety consultation, vision consultation.
