  • Recommending frames or contact lenses that suit the customer's style, face, and specifications.
  • Adjusting and fitting frames according to the prescriptions and customer's specifications, as well as to suit the customer's face.
  • Preparing work orders for the optical technicians to use to manufacture the lenses.
  • Using specialized equipment, such as calipers, lensometers, and lens gauges.
  • Keeping inventory on frames and contact lenses to ensure product variety and customer satisfaction.
  • Repairing broken frames.
  • Educating customers on how to wear and maintain glasses and contact lenses.
