What is a Paraoptometric?


Paraoptometrics work with doctors of optometry to perform the routine and technical tasks in the optometric office. They may be trained on the job or at a formal education program. 

As a paraoptometric, you hold more than just a job. You play a valuable role in the optometrist's office - in the care of each patient entering your office or clinic. You can, and should, make a contribution to the paraoptometric field with your knowledge and abilities. MOA provides you with the opportunity to learn and grow.
