Many students who are interested in a career in eye care do not realize the wide range of job opportunities available. Although optometrists and ophthalmologists obtain advanced degrees, most of the staff who support them require no more than two years of higher education. The jobs described in this handy resource include optician, ophthalmic laboratory and medical technician, ophthalmic photographer, medical equipment repairer, medical assistant, receptionist, insurance claims and policy processing clerk, and financial coordinator, among others. Job training and educational requirements are examined as well as job search strategies, creating a resume and cover letter, and preparing for an interview.
