Optical Experience and Training

It is important to know when being serviced for your medical needs that the staff is properly trained. Your optician is not  any different. In fact, in addition to the Optometrist, the optician plays a critical role in the accuracy, quality and style of your glasses. Luckily for consumers there is the American Board of Opticianry (ABO).

The American Board of Opticianry (ABO) and the National Contact Lens Examiners (NCLE) are national, non-profit organizations which administer voluntary certification examinations for dispensing opticians and contact lens technicians. Our purposes are to identify qualified eyewear providers by examination, urge growth of optical skills with continuing education, and approve continuing education programs.
