The U.S. Department of Labor predicts the demand for dispensing opticians to grow as fast as the average for all occupations through 2018. One reason for this steady growth is an increase in the number of people 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.
