The demand for opticians is on the rise because of increased life expectancy and the increased visual impairments caused by hereditary, occupational or environmental risks. The program aims to raise health technicians who can select the required visual equipment in accordance with the prescriptions of ophthalmologists, prepare the equipment in accordance with the specified and determined measurements and provide patients with the suitable equipment.
The employment opportunities have seen a sharp rise for graduates as legal regulations require entrepreneurs who will open an optician's shop to employ a managing director, who should have a college degree in Opticianry.
Our students gain an adequate level of knowledge and skills thanks to our fully-equipped opticianry laboratory using state-of-the-art technology under the guidance of our expert staff.
