We are very pleased to announce that two of our staff members completed their apprenticeships and became state licensed opticians.  Lora Jarnagin and Julie Vizzo are both staff members in our Wooster location.  Lora and Julie completed a state mandated two year apprenticeship,  passed the American Board of Opticianry’s licensure exam, and were approved by the Ohio Optical Dispenser’s  Board to receive state licensure.

Staff development is very important in our office.  Our doctors mentor and train all of our employees and we encourage all new employees to work towards obtaining their optician’s license.

Every employee hired in our office must complete an eight week written training course, but our staff training never stops.  Our doctors constantly work with our employees to teach them the proper techniques for pre-testing patients, selecting and ordering glasses, adjusting and repairing frames, contact lens training, patient triage, and billing and filing your insurance claims.

Over the last ten years, five of our staffers have gone from entry level employees to state licensed opticians.  It’s quite an accomplishment for our staffers and it’s a great record of achievement for our practice.

Our doctors know that an excellent staff makes a huge difference to the success of your office visit and to the success of our practice.

Congratulations Lora and Julie
