Are you taking Ophthalmic Dispensers Licensing Examination?
Register for our upcoming CE courses that will prepare students for the edging portion of the exam.
This is a non-credit course designed as a review for the New Jersey Ophthalmic Dispensers Licensing Examination. The review will cover the fabrication, neutralization, and dispensing portions of the exam. Attendees will have an opportunity to practice any areas they desire. Students are expected to already have the skills and knowledge to process a fabrication order for eyeglasses from start to finish. Students are required to bring all of the hand tools necessary to participate with each desired area. Contact Daniel Banks at firstname.lastname@example.org with date you registered for, as well as which sections you would like to participate with during the course.
The Ophthalmic Science Department of Camden County College welcomed its first class in the Fall of 1972. Since that time, more than one thousand students have received superior training in our optical programs. Current enrollment is approximately 100 students.
Upon completion, graduates are eligible to sit for the national certification by the Joint Commission on Allied Health Personnel in Ophthalmology (JCAHPO) at the Certified Ophthalmic Technician (COT) level.
The OMT program is nationally accredited by the Committee on Accreditation for Ophthalmic Medical Personnel (CoA-OMP).
Ophthalmic medical technicians are optical professionals that assist ophthalmologists in medical offices and/or hospitals. They perform many skilled testing procedures that are part of a complete eye exam, including history taking, refractometry (for vision correction) tonometry (for glaucoma detection) and visual field testing. Sometimes they have more specialized duties, such as contact lens fitting, or assisting in surgery.
