Eyecare Specialist Course Activities

The Eyecare Specialist program at North-West College is a professional health care training course designed to provide the fundamental knowledge and education needed to work as a technical assistant under a doctor’s supervision.

Eyecare Specialists routinely perform a variety of important tasks, including:

  • Receiving customers’ prescriptions for eyeglasses or contact lenses.
  • Measuring customers’ eyes and faces, such as the distance between their pupils.
  • Helping customers choose eyeglass frames and lens treatments, such as eyewear for occupational use or sports, tints or anti-reflective coatings, based on their vision needs and style preferences.
  • Creating work orders for ophthalmic laboratory technicians, providing information about the lenses needed.
  • Adjusting eyewear to ensure a good fit.
  • Repairing or replacing broken eyeglass frames.
  • Educating customers about eyewear—for example, show them how to care for their contact lenses.
