well in about an hour I will be on my way to go take my Paraoptometric Test. I haven't had to take a big important test in a really long time. I feel ready though. I've been in the optical field for 6 years now so many of the items that will be on the test I am already familiar with. You might be wondering what a Paraoptometric is.
Depending upon experience, paraoptometrics perform a
variety of duties such as front desk procedures, billing and
coding of insurance claims, and patient scheduling. Under the
supervision of their employing optometrist, paraoptometrics may
also perform more clinical duties such as pre-testing patients,
contact lens procedures, and ophthalmic optics and dispensing
Update: I passed my test! Wahoo!
