Introduction:
What's really going on in an eye exam? As opticians, we need to understand the Doctor's prescription and recommendations. It is to our advantage to look beyond this written sheet of paper and to inquire if any medical factors will come in to play. Respectfully, opticians should become familiar with the importance of patient history and pretesting for ocular diseases, should understand the medical equipment used to diagnose systemic conditions, and should be aware of visual disorders that a patient may have. Having all the correct information will aid opticians in being successful upon helping a patient receive a great pair of glasses and fulfill their expectations.
