Our Refraction program is intended for contact lens fitters who wish to enrich their professional development and flexibility in the job market by learning theories and methodologies involved in refraction.
As a scientific term, refraction refers to the way wave transmissions (such as light) change direction when passed through a medium (such as a lens). In opticianry, a refraction test determines the eye's refractive error, which allows an optician to suggest the best corrective lenses to provide the patient with the sharpest and clearest vision.
Our program is split between 2 courses designed to be taken at the same time. The first course walks you through theoretical concepts to prepare you for on-the-job training. The second course puts your knowledge to the test and helps you enhance your opticianry skill set through hands-on ocular assessment practice.
