Optometrists – Supplementary Dispensers

An optometrist is a person that helps you correct your vision. However the optometrist will require the help of an optician, who is the technical person that designs, fits and dispenses the kind of corrective lenses you may need. The field of Optometry is regulated, licensed and registered under the healthcare profession and is bound by the constitution of the Professional Board for Optometry and Dispensing Opticians.

It is the opticians function to determine the specifications of various ophthalmic appliances. Corrective ophthalmic appliances include contact lenses, spectacles lenses, low vision aids or ophthalmic prosthetics. These appliances are designed to assist people who are regarded as partially sighted. The required device can be placed onto the eye, such as contact lenses, or be inserted into a frame as in the case of spectacles. Along with these corrective devices, the need for supplementary items like sterilisation liquids, or cleaning clots for your spectacles are just as necessary as the devices themselves. Branded names in the production of such supplementary requirements are well known in the industry. They develop these products after years of testing, and many a times in conjunction with both the optometrist and the optician.

However, from 2014 onwards, those wishing to practice as dispensing opticians will require a Bachelor degree in optometry. The traditional qualification of a Bachelor of Technology degree will no longer be accepted. Dispensing opticians will also have to serve community service and write a Board examination. For more information on qualified and registered supplementary optical dispensers you should visit the yellow pages website.
