Description

Introduction: Opticians know that contact lenses are fit as either a soft contact lens or a rigid gas permeable. We know that with whichever type of lens prescribed that the contact lens is placed directly onto the eye and that on occasion the prescription may vary from the eyeglass prescription. In my experience I have found that for many the understanding of the differences between spectacle correction and contact lens corrections ends there without much additional detail or explanation.

Objectives

Objectives

I have been a dual licensed optician for 17 years and in that time have worked in various aspects of healthcare from low vision to teaching to hospital administrative and billing work. Each career move has prepared me for the next and I am 100% certain the variety of healthcare experiences has truly given me the skills and knowledge needed to continue to grow professionally. In eyecare I have worked in both the private and retail chain sectors and have learned a lot from both. Most recently I have gone back to part time work as a licensed optician in the state of Ohio and have been enjoying my work with doctors and patients while expanding myself professionally into the world of writing. What I love about my career as an optician is the time and flexibility it has allowed me with my family. Most days I am home with my two boys ages 6 and 4. They are only this young once and I cannot express enough how thankful I am to be able to share in these precious years with them.
