An optician is a specialized technician who takes care of the glasses, contacts, or other ophthalmic devices prescribed by an ophthalmologist or an optometrist.
An optician typically has access to diverse pre-fabricated devices or parts of devices.
He helps a patient choose the design of the frames of the glasses, adapts the lenses to the frames, and helps with the fitting and look of the frame with the face of the wearer. When possible, the optician repairs the device if it has been damaged.
Some opticians don’t work with patients, but rather at companies and laboratories where they design new models for frames. In this environment, they use both their technical skills and their sense of aesthetics. However, opticians who work with patients also need to have a sense of aesthetics since part of their work is to make sure that the device looks good on the patient.
Some opticians are able to design or fit devices that have to be custom-made for the specific needs of a patient.
