How do you become a liscenced optician? What kind of salary would you expect in that field?
I would like to go to optometry school but I don't think I can afford it. I don't want to be paying off loans for the rest of my life. Is being an optician a good alternative?? If anyone could tell me about the field I would appreciate it.

It's a good field to go into, since in most states you do not need to go to college, you would apprentice under another optician or optometrist. I would go to your states' website and search 'boards' and do some homework, or even call some local optical businesses.
