Course 3 - Frame Fitting & Adjustments

3 CET interactive points for Dispensing Opticians

As a receptionist/optical assistant, how confident are you at adjusting a patients frame when in front of them?

Remove the fear of frame fitting and adjusting!

This all day hands-on adjustments course will provide you with the skills and confidence to perform adjustments on patient’s spectacles whether it is during the collection process or if they have come back after sitting on them (although they never admit it)!

You will learn about the different frame materials and why they handle differently when they need to be fitted to different face shapes along with how to fit frames for a developing child whose facial anatomy is changing as they mature.

Other objectives for the day include fitting the frame behind a patients ear, nose pad alignment in relation to the patients nose, re-threading nylon cords including the figure of 8, rimless adjustments including the new plug insert styles where you will learn how to replace and re-insert a patients own lens.

Your investment also includes a comprehensive book with all of the adjustments listed.
