Dispensing Opticians

Employment for dispensing opticians will grow much faster than the average for all occupations through 2024, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. One reason for this steady growth is an increase in the number of people—especially the elderly—who need corrective lenses. Educational programs such as vision screening have made the public more aware of eye problems, therefore increasing the need for dispensing opticians. Insurance programs cover more optical needs, which means that more clients can afford optical care. The wide variety of fashionable frames also has increased demand for eyeglasses.
