To give the best service to customers they need to have a good knowledge of contact lens practice (especially care procedures); be familiar with different types of lenses and their application; they need to understand different prescriptions, presbyopia and the types of ametropia; and, they need to have grasped the fundamentals of degenerative eye conditions such as cataract, glaucoma and macular degeneration to say nothing of having daily to draw on excellent interpersonal skills which allow them to deal with clients sympathetically and tactfully. To cap it all, they need to be accomplished administrators who can keep on top of the flow of work, records and appointments generated by a busy practice."The Complete Optometric Assistant" will be your valued guide through all of the above. Sarah Morgan draws on her experience as an optometrist teaching optometric assistants to take you step-by-step and with clarity and authority through each of these areas and more in one handy volume. Comprehensive and extremely practical, "The Complete Optometric Assistant" will be indispensable reading for all front-line practice staff, as well as being enormously useful to students and dispensing opticians.
