Stephen discovered his purpose at Goodwin College. Are you ready to discover yours?
"Being an optician is very fulfilling and I couldn't be happier with my career path."
As an optician, you will be responsible for analyzing and interpreting prescriptions to determine lenses that are best suited for a patient’s lifestyle and visual needs, as well as ensuring the best fit and visual acuity of contact lenses . Upon completion of the Vision Care Technology program, you will be prepared to sit for both The American Board of Opticianry (ABO) and the National Contact Lens Examination (NCLE).
