A full-scope practice of optometry serves patients with many different needs. Whether you have a comprehensive primary care practice, or are highly specialized, doctors of optometry will appreciate the contact lenses, sports and performance, vision rehabilitation, and vision therapy tools and resources developed by volunteers and staff.
Specialty services like contact lenses, sports and performance vision, vision rehabilitation, and vision therapy can be a part of any optometry practice. Volunteers from the Contact Lens and Cornea Section (CLCS), Sports and Performance Vision Committee, Vision Rehabilitation Committee, and Vision Therapy Task Force have developed resources for doctors of optometry of all types.
For doctors of optometry with a comprehensive primary care practice, CLCS resources can help doctors to maximize their contact lens practice and consider the full range of anterior segment options for their patients. Those same doctors might appreciate guidance on ways to help their patients understand how optometric care can improve their performance in sports and optimize functional vision. Vision rehabilitation resources help doctors to offer options to their low vision patients. Highly specialized doctors of optometry can find resources and news at the cutting edge of their interest area, and ways to connect with their passionate colleagues.
