The student-run Optical Dispensary, located at Tri-C's Metropolitan Campus, is under the direct supervision of licensed opticians. Optical Technology students will gain experience in the field by helping students, and community members with the fitting and purchase of eyeglasses. Patients will be required to bring a current prescription as prescribed by an ophthalmologist or optometrist. A current prescription is unexpired and must not be older than two years.
Single vision glasses are available to fit a variety of frame designs. Fees will vary depending on the choice of lenses and frames. When applicable, fees must be paid prior to optical services being provided.
- Eyeglass design: Our students take individualized physiognomic measurements using state of the art equipment.
- Eyeglass fabrication: Eyeglasses are custom made by one of our Optical Technology students and all eyewear is verified and approved by an optician who is licensed in the State of Ohio.
- Eyeglass dispensing: All eyeglasses are dispensed by an Optical Technology student under the supervision of an optician who is licensed in the State of Ohio.
Thank you to everyone who has supported the Optical Dispensary throughout the 2020-21 academic year!
We will return on Sept. 14, 2021.
