If what you are looking for isn’t listed, or if you have additional questions, please contact us. We would be happy to discuss your practice’s needs.

…since our refraction class we have not had optical remakes because of technicians’ mistakes so that has been GREAT!! Jennifer R.  Clinical Director 

Assessment

It’s not uncommon for ophthalmic administrators and physicians to assume all clinical staff are performing skills consistently and that the documented results are accurate. As part of Eyetechs’ clinical offerings, we will observe your technicians as they perform actual patient work-ups, and evaluate their skills for proper technique and comprehension.

From that information, we can then instruct your staff in the proper techniques and provide your doctors with the confidence that the staff is performing consistently with one another and to the doctors’ expectations.

Are you concerned about hiring new technicians? We can also help you develop a personalized training program to use for new ophthalmic medical personnel.

Training Manual

The Eyetechs Technician Training Manual is to be used as a guide for training people to be ophthalmic technicians who have little or no experience in providing assistance in the clinic. The framework is structured around the conventional 12-week orientation period in a general practice. Because every practice is different, you may find that the timelines will vary for your office.

This manual is based on the premise that the employee must invest in his or her career just as the employer is investing in it. Included in this manual are associated readings from either of the COA home study books, quizzes and step-by-step directions for many of the skills that techs perform. There is also a skills tracking table to monitor their progress.
