Studying Specs

All about our Dispensing Students!

It's heads down to some serious studying for two of our team, who are working hard to qualify as Dispensing Opticians. Nikki, who usually works at Rothwell and Kettering, has just completed her first block release placement in her first few weeks of part-time study. Alison, who has just joined us, will be working at Kettering and Market Harborough, and she is now in her final year of the course.

Dispensing Opticians usually study for their professional diploma part time, while working in practice. The course covers theory and practical work relating to spectacle lenses, general optics, the anatomy of the eye, visual optics and spectacle frames. This gives them a full understanding of how lenses work, and this is then applied to their everyday routine of helping patients to select frames and lenses which best fulfill their needs. The three year course is challenging and hopefully fun too!

Student Dispensing Opticians









We already have three fully qualified Dispensing Opticians on our team, and the addition of two more will give full support to our Optometrists and our lens workshop. So if you're passing reception and you hear some advanced maths going on, or discussion of the internal structures of the eye, you'll know it's our hardworking students helping each other with their homework!

Always had good service from you over 52 years.
