There are twenty-two state that require licensure to be an optician. Unfortunately for the public, Texas is not one of them. There is not any training required for someone to practice opticianry in this state. Opticians must take critical measurements and fabricate complicated eye glass prescriptions. The adjustment and alignment of glasses is critical to patient satisfaction and to obtaining optimal vision. Opticians should be able to demonstrate at least basic knowledge of these skills. There is a national certification known as the ABO (American Board of Opticianry http://www.abo-ncle.org/), this certification can provide a base line measure for the competency of every optician in the state with very little time and effort. The frame work is in place for a better future, please join us in our efforts to bring eye care to the level you would expect.
With your help, we can see that the public has qualified personel filling eyeglass prescriptions in Texas. Thank you for taking the time to sign this petition!
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
