The recent advances m portable optometric equipment and technology offer a greater potential than ever before for optometrists to leave their offices and increase their services and patient base. In this paper, we introduce manangement techniques for portable optometry along with various suggested forms. We discuss and list selected out of office equipment and discuss special services such as vision therapy, consulting, dispensing and contact lenses that can be done outside of the office. We conclude that full-scope optometry can be accomplished out of the office.
