Ophthalmic Assistant


The 50-hour Ophthalmic Assistant Program prepares students for entry level positions in Ophthalmology, one of the fastest growing healthcare segments. Through classroom lecture and labs, this program includes: anatomy and physiology of the eye; general principles of pharmacology; prescriptions written for the eye; visual acuity; and tonometry (basic) and glaucoma. Also includes a review of ocular dressing procedures; maintenance of equipment and instruments and other areas. Note: Although this program does not include a clinical rotation or national or state certification as part of its overall objectives, this program meets the requirements of the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), and the AAO’s Ophthalmic Medical Assisting Exam - which students may take after meeting certain work experience requirements.
