Inspired by a dated compilation from a 1995 Pacific University College of Optometry student thesis, the purpose of this project is to compile a complete reference resource for the primary care optometrist to improve the quality, efficiency, and understanding of visual findings gathered in a clinical setting. Sources were gathered by a literature search of the database of the Southern College of Optometry's Optometric Archives and literature VISIONET. A normative database such as this may be useful as a reference for an optometric physician in choosing efficient and effective test protocols, interpreting test results and defining better diagnoses, therefore also treatment prioritization.
