FACTOIDS

Of the over 67,000 opticians designing, manufacturing
and dispensing eyewear, less than half have any formal
certification or licensure. -- U.S. Department of Labor

When Opticians relate to consumers as customers,
it often has an adverse impact on the relationship.
When consumers order their prescription eyewear, they
should invariably be served as Patients, never customers.
Customers receive merchandise. Patients receive health care.

Points To Ponder

"Opticianry is ultimately defined by how well the eyewear makes
contact
with the Patient, not by the number of Customers served.
For the truly skilled Optician, the standard of care must include
a customized design and form-fitting of eyewear on each
Patient.
Our mission is to humanize the dispensing
of prescription eyewear." --
Opticians For Change

"There is no right or wrong way to dispense eyewear.
There is only the Patient's way. Therefore, take as much time
as needed
to customize their eyewear." --
Hari S. Bird, Optician

"Hands on the patient dispensing is a soon-to-be-lost art and craft. If the
trend to the narrower and strictly retail approach to ophthalmic service
continues its pace, a) The marketing of ready-to-wear, over-the-counter,
and Web-source eyewear will continue to flourish; b) Hands-on-the-patient
dispensing skills and services will disappear; c) Patients will continue to
suffer from substandard quality of service; and d) Prescription eyewear
will continue to be delivered by an ever increasing number of unskilled
dispensers. The fact is that the majority of today's eyewear dispensing
professionals require major upgrading in their skills without which they will
become increasingly irrelevant to the eyecare industry." --
Hari S. Bird, Optician

Opticians are skilled Healthcare Professionals.

A skilled Optician must take as much time as needed to handcraft eyewear.

Time For Craftsmanship


   

Books, lectures and tests can take an Optician's skills only so far.

It is time for touch-and-feel, Hands on the Patient training.
Only one on one craftsmanship training provides this.
Craftsmanship cannot be learned virtually.

"Handcrafted frame fitting, i.e., touch and feel, hands-on dispensing,
cannot be outsourced to lectures or virtual sources. It is an art form,
which requires actual and multi-dimensional contact with the patient."

HANDS ON THE PATIENT WORKSHOP TRAINING AVAILABLE HERE
"It is incumbent on those who know, to teach those who do not know.
It is incumbent on those who do not know to surrender their ego."

ABO, American Board of Opticianry accredited, and Florida State Board approved CE
hours for Intermediate and Advanced Level Opticians in Handcrafted Frame Fitting
are currently offered under the sponsorship of POF, the Professional Opticians of
Florida. Click or Call 855-410-2700 to arrange for Training Session.
