Skills taught include taking patient medical history, technology-based diagnostic testing, refractometry, and much more. This program could be completed in as little as 10 months.
The Opticianry Associate’s Degree program offers comprehensive coursework designed to teach students to follow prescriptions from optometrists and ophthalmologists as they measure, fit, and adapt eyeglasses and contact lenses to people with vision problems. Material taught includes optics, ocular pharmacology, eyewear fabrication, and much more. This program could be completed in as little as 14 months.
Both programs are taught at our newly-renovated campus, conveniently located in downtown Pittsburgh. Request more information today!
