Optometry is a profession with high relevance in primary visual care, which comprises a body of knowledge of physical, ophthalmic and physiological optics, neurosciences, specific techniques and rehabilitation protocols, aimed at the correction/offset of visual deficits for the improvement of the visual functions.

Optometrists provide extensive care in vision and visual system, including detection, analysis, assessment and compensation of refractive nature visual problems, functional and binocular, with the purpose of prescribing lenses, visual aids, training and/or rehabilitation of conditions of the visual system and referencing to medical specialties.
