The ABCs of Optical Dispensing Module



The paraoptometric spectacle dispenser plays an important role in completing the eyecare experience for the patient. Patients who feel good about their new eyewear are more likely to follow good vision habits and maximize the therapeutic and ocular health benefits that come with wearing eyeglasses. This course is designed to give every member of the office team a fundamental understanding of:

  • frame selection and adjustments
  • spectacle lens materials and designs
  • lens treatments
  • lens measurements
  • as well as tips for presenting designer frames and prescription sunglasses

Voice-over instructions provide an interesting format for learning. Thumbnails provide the convenience to "start and stop" at any time and pick up where you left off easily.

There is an opportunity to earn 1 hour of continuing education credit from the AOA Paraoptometric Section for successfully passing the test provided at the end of the module by answering sixteen of the twenty-five questions correctly. There is a $10 processing fee for members/$25 for non-members. The ABCs of Optical Dispensing is brought to you by the AOA Paraoptometric Section and is sponsored by a generous educational grant from the Luxottica Group.
