Quality professional optical dispensing requires years of training. After completion of two years as an apprentice and much coursework, opticians are given the opportunity to test for the State Board Examination. Only the best trained and most qualified opticians achieve State Licensure.
The quality of your finished eyewear is dependent on the proper selection of frame size and shape, the careful measurement of optical centers and multifocal position, and the proper adjustment of the frame for both comfort, appearance and optical performance.
