Ophthalmic Laboratory Technicians

Advancement Prospects

Ophthalmic laboratory technicians can advance as they gain experience and technical skills. They may become supervisors or managers or assist in the training of newer technicians. With additional training and education, many technicians become dispensing opticians. Dispensing opticians are responsible for measuring and fitting customers with eyeglass frames and contact lenses, reading customers' prescriptions for lenses, and preparing work orders for the ophthalmic laboratory technicians who will fabricate the lenses.
