Dispensing opticians must be familiar with methods, materials, and operations employed in the optical industry. Their tasks include ensuring that eyeglasses are made according to the optometrist's prescription, determining exactly where the lenses should be placed in relation to the pupils of the eyes, assisting the customer in selecting appropriate frames or lens treatments (such as tints or nonreflective coatings), preparing work orders for the optical laboratory technician, and sometimes selling optical goods.
