The Optimal Tech provides information on the many facets of our job as eye care assistants while encouraging techs who may feel overwhelmed. Every subspecialty is broken down to the anatomy of the eye it involves, ailments one would expect to encounter while working with the subspecialty, and what a typical exam looks like for these injuries and diseases. Not only are technicians primed for eventually performing ophthalmic tests or assisting with surgery, but they are provided an explanation of why techs and doctors order all that they do.
