The Tyler Junior College Vision Care Clinic will be open to the public during February and March, offering eye exams for $70 as well as eyeglasses at a discounted rate.
The clinic serves as a valuable learning tool for TJC ophthalmic medical assisting students pursuing certification for careers in the vision care industry. Upon graduation, they may work as assistants in optometrists’ or ophthalmologists’ offices or as opticians who fill prescriptions for eyeglasses and contact lenses.
Clinic hours are 12:45-4 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, Feb. 1-March 28. The clinic is in Room 138 of the Regional Training Development Center at TJC West, located at 1530 SSW Loop 323 in Tyler.
Eye exams are available 12:45-3 p.m. Thursdays, by appointment only, with optometrist Dr. Bryan Frazier performing the eye exams and TJC students assisting with patient assessments and exams.
TJC ophthalmic medical assisting students gain hands-on experience during TJC’s annual vision clinic, which offers discount eye exams, eyeglasses and contact lenses.
The clinic will be closed for TJC’s spring break, March 11-15.
