Description

Introduction: Much of what goes into designing lenses and making lens recommendations can be attributed to the Lensmakers Equation. Tracing back the variables that make up the equation takes us back into the rich history and characters of optics. As ECPs, learning this equation and the history of its derivation will give us a sophisticated understanding of our industry. Our patients will respect our knowledge; our recommendations will have more gravity, and the industry as a whole will benefit from highly qualified ECPs.

Objectives

Objectives
Upon completion of this course the participant should be able to understand: what variables make up the Lensmakers Equation; who contributed what in regards to optics and the Lensmakers Equation; how to become a more sophisticated ECP by harnessing the history of lens optics.

I am an Arizona State licensed optician and continuing education author. My formal education consists of a B.S. in Chemistry and my informal education is continual in mathematics, physics, and astronomy. Having worked in the field of opticianry for nearly 8 years, I have experienced a wide spectrum of the industry. I obtained my start at the ubiquitous Lenscrafters, where I was hired to add some new breath in the sales training for the opticians, since I had previously been employed as a sales trainer at Best Buy. I quickly obtained my ABO and NCLE certifications and expanded my knowledge by working occasionally in the on-site surfacing lab. After some years at the retail level I jumped at an opportunity to work in a surgical practice which was growing a nascent optical department called Sharona Optical. I earned my Arizona opticians license in the shortest allowed time while at Sharona Optical. My knowledge of Ophthalmology, Optometry, and opticianry expanded exponentially there. I was able to observe an enormous range of eye disorders, treatment techniques, and the future of high tech vision correction. Also working at a private practice allowed the opportunity to develop my medical office management skills. I contributed to large profit increases and successfully swayed the transition from largely paper based systems. Later I was fortunate enough to have another valuable employment opportunity offered by private practice which partnered with a renown vision therapy specialist. The practice named Visions Optique, had partnered with Dr. Richard Glonek, and it is here where I have had the pleasure to learn about the misunderstood but important field of vision therapy. I am currently the licensed optician at Visions Optique and assist in practice management, training, and most recently began authoring continuing education courses. I bring my personal style, or at least attempt, to my CE courses. Notably a balanced journey involving interesting history of a subject, related side notes, and engaging vernacular.
