Inside Ophthalmic Technician Careers

Things you need to know, but nobody tells you

 

Best & Worst Things About This Career


Surgical Ophthalmic Technician: "The best part of my job is getting to help people. It is good to know that because of the work that I do, people will be able to see more clearly. It is also nice to be able to work in all aspects of the patient care and not be stuck in the same routine every day. Every surgery and patient is different and you have to think and act accordingly. The bad part of my job is the hectic pace. We perform as many as 40 surgeries in a day and the doctors move very quickly. This can result in a stressful work atmosphere." (2011)

Career Tips


"Become A Certified Ophthalmic Tech...
To do this career a person must like to work with people. The patients are not always in the best mood and are often very scared, which can make them difficult to deal with. You can not take the way they act or talk personally. It is also important to keep up with your education. Not everyone who works in the field is certified, but those who are certified are more valuable to their employers." (Surgical Ophthalmic Technician; 2011)
