Description

Good pediatric dispensing requires a special approach. Any optician can make and dispense glasses, but dispensing to children requires a thoughtful and sensitive understanding of the unique issues surrounding children and their eyewear needs. Children often feel threatened in a medical or quasi-medical environment, and the dispensing optician has a great deal of influence over a child’s perception of the “safety” of the setting. As opticians, we can take steps to increase the comfort level of our juvenile patients without sacrificing the quality of eyewear or dispensing techniques.

Objectives

Objectives
