We are the people that need medical help all the time. We do need to maintain health everyday of our lives. We are concerned about it every day. Once something wrong we run to the doctors. Doctors seem to be all answers, but what about eyes, is everyone concerned about eyes? These days it's very easy, if you have
insurance you are covered wherever you go, just like auto insurance, no worries whatsoever. Eyes are very important thing in our lives. We need eyes for
everything. There are even special doctors to treat eyes. They are licensed as Optometrists. Doctors who help them and dispense glasses, they are more doing
technical stuff. Optometrists are doctors that examine your eyes and actually prescribe you glasses or contacts. The optician makes and fits glasses whatever he
sees on optometrist's prescription. Options help you fit your glasses in style and for the best look also.
They advise customers on the fit of particular frames. They may be too small, or too large for persons face. It al depends on persons face frame. If they fit
well, opticians cut or grind lenses according to the customer's prescription, then fit them to the chosen frames. In some clinics, opticians have a person who
assists them with grinding glasses, while the opticians help only in selecting and fitting glasses for customers. Small adjustments may be needed, like bending the "nosepiece" of the glasses with delicate pliers to make the glasses more comfortable.
Taking different measurements of the customer's head and eyes helps opticians make these minor adjustments. When customers prefer contact lenses, opticians must take more complicated measurements of the eyes. The shape and
size of the eye affect what type of contact lens is needed. Opticians instruct customers how to insert and remove contact lenses, as well as how to care for
them on daily bases. Opticians may also keep records of customers' prescriptions, orders, and payments. There are different places where opticians can work.
They may be based in medical offices or small stores where there is only one optician on duty, or they may be in large offices or stores where several opticians
work at the same time. Opticians employed by these stores may be required to work evenings and weekends to accommodate customers' schedules. While most
opticians work full-time, there are opportunities to work part-time, especially in stores that are open evenings. Job prospects for opticians are good because of
the increase in the number of older people. Many of these people will soon need, or already have, glasses. To become an optician you need to first complete high
school as usual. Optician programs are offered at two-year colleges and technical schools. Students typically take courses in optical dispensing, anatomy of the
eye, contact lenses, and optical business management. In most states, an exam must also be taken and passed to receive an optician's license. Opticians should have good finger dexterity. They should have good communication skills so they can speak clearly.
