We want this website to serve as a directory guide, or an on-ramp, for educational programs as you explore the many options available.

What We Offer

OpticianEDU.org was created as an effort to encourage more people to consider a career in the vision care field.  If you are in the process of fulfilling specific requirements on becoming an optician, please be sure to view our list of career information and step by step process on how to become an optician by state here.

We will continue to facilitate and expedite our visitors’ journey into their chosen careers by adding up to date information within each state, and new career opportunities in the vast field of vision care.

OpticianEDU.org has researched individual state requirements on becoming an optician. We also present the best options for residents of states that do not have a program in the chosen field, may that be an accredited program or not. Also presented are “distance learning” options for students who may live too far from the nearest program or school.

OpticianEDU.org has done much of the groundwork, especially regarding tuition costs, financial aid, and benefits for veterans. The basic requirements for each state are cited, as are the procedures required to begin the application process
