Course Overview

The role may involve being stationed in the front line, receiving calls, making appointments, and welcoming people in the facility. More than anything, however, OAs are the first in line to understand and communicate the needs of clients and patients. Whether it is a symptom of a vision problem or a concern relating to frames or lens, OAs need to make sure that the needs of clients and patients are properly communicated to the practice staff who will handle the case.

Considering the responsibility assigned to OAs, it can benefit those interested to pursue this profession to have foundation knowledge of the current practices in the field. This is where our course can help.
