"I highly recommend the Optometric Assistant program! Our teacher was just the best. She has a slew of experience in the field, and I looked forward to class every time. Thanks to the support of the school and our devoted teacher I was able to get my foot in the door of optical, which I didn't think was a possibility when I thought about changing careers!"
