What an Optician Does
Opticians are not eye doctors, but play an important part of your eye care team. They are trained to use a prescription provided by an optometrist or ophthalmologist to design and fit corrective lenses and frames. In general, they receive a one- or two-year degree or certification and are not qualified to diagnose or treat vision problems or eye diseases.
The knowledgeable opticians in our Optical Boutique have more than 40 years of combined experience and can assist you in selecting the right frame and lenses to fit your personality, lifestyle and budget.
Try Before You Buy
When your eye exam reveals that you need prescription lenses, the choices are endless. Once you’ve made a selection, the state-of-the-art Visioffice® measuring system will allow you to see yourself in the new glasses before you buy.
It allows your optician to take a single measurement to record your eye rotation center for each eye, as well as your natural head posture, eye position, visual behavior and frame measurements – all factors that are unique to each patient and can impact lens performance.
The information is then used to create individualized lenses just for you. Try on different frames and take photos at different angles to see how you look. You’ll also be able to select different lens materials and desired add-ons, such as anti-reflective coating to help eliminate glare.
If you prefer contact lenses, Elmquist Eye Group offers a wide selection, including:
- Daily, weekly, biweekly and monthly contact lenses
- Soft contact lenses
- Disposable contact lenses
- Bifocal and multifocal contact lenses
- Monovision contact lenses
- Color contact lenses
- Rigid gas permeable contact lenses
- Extended wear contact lenses
- Toric contact lenses for astigmatism
Once you are an established contact lens patient, you’ll be able to order your contact lenses online. The contact lenses can be delivered directly to your home, eliminating the need for a trip to our office.
