ENVISION YOUR FUTURE IN VISION CARE
Seeing a future more clearly

A career in vision care is an extremely rewarding health care profession. As a vision care professional, you will be assisting others in one of life's most precious gifts, the ability to see. As a vision care technician you may perform in one or more of several different areas. You may serve the eye care physician as an Optometric or Ophthalmic Assistant. You may also become an optician and serve the public and physicians as the professional that fills prescriptions for glasses and contact lenses.

All technical courses in the degree curriculum must be successfully completed with a grade of "C" or better in order to receive the certificate. Having not made a grade of "C" or better in any technical course, the student may not be allowed to continue taking technical courses until that deficiency is satisfied.
