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.
Obviously I can't do all of them but I just want to know what I have to study.
When doing A levels. what subjects or qualifications are needed in order to become an optician - as a career.
Sorry if this is a supid question to any optical experts out there. I am planning on applying for a job for one at my local Specsavers. The job description seems to be that of a regular store assistant, but i don't want to apply and then find out previous experience is needed. Thanks!
Within a week or two I'll be applying to study optometry to be an optician. Ideally, I'd like to work in a hospital rather than in a store, but for now I'm quite open to suggestions. The pay over the years has dropped by quite a lot, but I'm fascinated my human biology, especially eyes, so it's a career I'd love to go into.
Any personal experiences or friends/family that work as optometrists? What adivce/knowledge could you provide me with?
Thanks very much!
Okay so I have been to my eyeglasses place twice because as you know plastic frames stretch and need adjusting once in a while. The first time they did a bad job and the second time they did an even worse job. I don't want to go back and have either of the two ladies that did a bad job try to do it again. I'm pretty sure it's against the warranty to go somewhere else and have them fix them. Should I call and ask to talk to the manager or something? Please help!
I am thinking of doing 'Optometry' at a university, preferably Aston. But i was wondering is this the actual course to become an optician? If it is not, what is?
I'm interested in the whole, forensics thing. I like researching and experiments. I like to learn about the body system; Solar system, animals, environment, practically, everything to do with science i love. So, I was just wondering, what jobs involve a lot of research and things like that. I was thinking about a marine biologist. Forensic scientist. Or anything along those lines, Any suggestions are appreciated.

I already know about nurses and doctors and midwives ect, but I've always been interested in the human body so what other possible jobs are there? No stupid answers please :)
Is an optician a good job to have part time while you're going to school for your bsn in nursing? they train on the job and no certificate is needed. its in the medical field and you work with doctors but i'm not sure...it doesn't have anything to do with nursing. will it look good on a resume once i finish school or should i do something else
A Psychiatrist or an optician ? Thanks for your help.
I have a prescription for a cerain brand of contacts - the expensive ones. I want to buy some less expensive Acuvue. A friend of mine bought some online - and says that he could get any brand that he wants - it's just the size specs that only matters. Are the people working at the opticians centers trying to just make me buy the more expensive ones, by making reasons/excuses about the prescription? One girl who worked there, said that if I wanted to change brands - I'd have to be examined again and pay for another exam!! What does the law say? Who is the authority on the power of contact lens prescriptions and the brands of the products - to choose by the consumer?
I'm looking forward to a bright future, and I definitely see myself working with the human body. I'm most fascinated with the eyes, and I was wondering what jobs are available that deals with eyes and which are most efficient. Like, maybe one where I help patients find out if they should prescribe for glasses or something.
I understand that an optical consultant is the shop assistant at an opticians, but what exactly does this involve? Taking customer details? Fitting glasses? Or just taking money for them?
I'm pretty sure I want to do something in the medical field, but Im not sure what. Name all the jobs you can think of and any details you can give on each of them. Also, please tell if you would like that job for yourself.
Whoever gives the best/longest list gets the points.
I want to reshape this single non-prescription lens I have to fit into these other sun-glasses. I already have a lens that fits into the glasses, but I removed them because they are the wrong color. I have the right color lens(but wrong size) but want to reshape them so they are the same exact size and shape of the wrong-color lens(its a single lens) I removed. How can I do this? What kind of tools can I use or should I just go to an optician?
I currently wear contact lenses -5.75 on both eyes, however I am thinking of applying for a new job that requires me to be able to see 6/36 with out any contacts/glasses.
Could anyone tell me if I could see 6/36 if I need to wear - 5.75 in contacts ?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I was always told that an associate's degree is equivalant to a high school diploma. and usually diplomas cant get you any good paying occupations. i am too lazy to study and get a bachelor's degree from college, i dont even know what major i want to do. when i look through the newspaper ad, many jobs require at least an associates degree and couple years of experience. i dont have experience or anything, i dont know where to start. can someone tell me what kind of job i can get with an associate degree with no experience? and what is the pay for each.
Do they have to go to college for that job? 2 year 4 year college? Do they get payed good money?
