OPTICIANS:

FRONTLINE OF VISION CARE

The Ontario Opticians Association has been the official voice of Ontario Opticians for over 70 years. The Association's Mandate is to enhance, promote and protect the profession of Opticianry.

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 (non-medical eye care professionals) to determine the specifications of ophthalmic appliances necessary to correct a persons’ eyesight.
