Since my 2 year anniversary of working as an Ophthalmic Technician has arrived, I wanted to do a couple of posts describing more about what I do on a daily basis.
An ophthalmic technician is an eye doctor's assistant. My first job was with Dr. Plotsky in Bethesda, MD. I got that job through an ad on Craigslist. Luckily, I gained a lot of great skills with that job which made it easy to find a similar job when I moved to Illinois. I currently work for the doctors at the Marion Eye Center. My home office is Carbondale. I primarily work there but can be sent to other locations if needed.
