From Ontario Opticians Association Focus Newsletter September 2014
Are opticians stuck in the past? Often, I think about what an optician will look like in ten or twenty years. I’ve witnessed the evolution of our profession over the past 42 years and have seen the small, incremental changes, which at times seemed like world changers. I find it very interesting that when talking to some opticians about the security and evolution of our profession the conversation seems to dwell on where we are now. When I move the conversation towards how our profession must provide more services to the eye care buying public to remain relevant, I seem to lose their attention. Maybe I’m now losing your attention!
