Optical dispensers

If you have good communication skills, good hand-eye coordination, enjoy helping people and pay attention to detail then becoming an optical dispenser might just be the right career for you. Optical dispensers or dispensing opticians provide spectacles to people who have eye problems. Contact lenses may also be fitted by these opticians. They interpret and analyze prescriptions that they receive from optometrists. Dispensing opticians will advise patients on all the different types of lenses and spectacle frames including advice on the different styles, weight and colors. They will also explain to you how to wear and care for your eyeglasses.
 
Optical dispensers will determine what type of lenses will be most suitable for a client’s lifestyle taking various factors into consideration. They will adjust eyeglasses to fit comfortably and also to enhance the appearance of a client. Opticians need to ensure that the lenses are made according to the minimum specifications that are laid down by the SABS. Once the lenses have been received from the optical technician, they are fitted into the frame chosen by the client.
 
Optical dispensers must have in-depth knowledge of all the different types of materials that can be used and should also keep up to date with all the new technologies as well as fashion trends in this particular field. They usually work alongside optometrists and optical technicians. Optical dispensers work in large retail stores, doctor’s offices or for independent practices. Some opticians may have their own shop. To find optical dispensers in South Africa, browse our Yellowpages Listings.
