WE ARE THE
FRONTLINE OF VISION CARE
What is an Optician?
An Optician is a licensed healthcare professional specially trained to help you achieve optimum vision with the application of eyeglasses, contact lenses, low vision aids and prosthetic ocular devices. Opticians interpret written prescriptions from ophthalmologists (medical doctors) and optometrists (Doctor of Optometry) to determine the specifications of ophthalmic appliances necessary to correct a person's eyesight.
