What are your options when a patient has uncommon vision problems?
In France, 60,000 people are affected with high vision loss, such as severe myopia, strabismus, and serious cases of astigmatism or presbyopia.
As an optician, you are likely confronted several times a year with unusual cases, and you may come to an unfortunate conclusion: standard lens manufacturers cannot provide the highly specialized lenses your clients need. A further challenge is that European laboratories that design specialty lenses work in only one or two technologies.
So, what are your options when it comes to choosing the right technology?
