Ophthalmic Assistants play a vital role in eye care. They perform ophthalmic procedures under the direction or supervision of a physician. An ophthalmic allied health professional assists the ophthalmologist by collecting data, administering tests and treatments, and supervising patients. This course provides all the practical information you need to complete your day-to-day tasks as an Ophthalmic Assistant. You will learn detailed information on paramedical training, ophthalmic technology, and efficient office management. This course also covers the anatomy, physiology, optics, pharmacology, and microbiology of the eye.

The Job Outlook

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the medical administrative assistant job outlook appears strong in coming years. Recent BLS publications indicate that employment of medical secretaries is projected to grow much faster than the average occupation, with an expected 27% increase between 2008 and 2018.* The BLS suggests that this expansion in medical secretary jobs will stem from overall growth in the healthcare industry as well as increasing automation of offices and organizational restructuring. The agency also asserts that experienced and trained medical secretaries will enjoy the best job opportunities.
