V153 Ophthalmic Dispensing
4 credit hours
Instructor: S. Pickel

Students in this course will learn a practical skill in an area
applicable to both optometry and opticianry. Students enjoy "hands-
on" instruction involving a variety of different activities with
optical lenses and frames. Students learn how to place lenses into
frames and how to adjust the eyewear so that it fits comfortably and
correctly. The frame selection process requires knowledge of proper
frame type, shape, size, and color needed to enhance the wearer's
appearance. Additional topics include frame and facial measurements,
eyewear prescription ordering, eyewear repair, and types of frame
and lens materials needed for specific purposes. No previous
experience is necessary and no prerequisites are required.
