Optician - Vision Care


Downtown Milwaukee Campus 


Learn how to construct eyewear, fit and adjust glasses, and assist patients in the selection of frames and lens materials. In addition, the program prepares you to perform preliminary eye examinations and educate patients about contact lens selection, use and care. In the second semester, students put their skills into practice working in the on-campus optical dispensary. 

Career Outlook: Employment opportunities are expected to increase due to growth in public awareness of the importance of good eyesight, the availability of vision screening programs, and the aging population.
