Refresh your knowledge and skills related to ophthalmology
Our Ophthalmic Review courses serve as refreshers for opticians with previous working knowledge of the field. Whether you are returning to the profession, want to review principles and theory or sharpen your skills, our courses will give you what you need to work with confidence.
The courses in our Ophthalmic Review program are not at the introductory level. Rather than start from scratch, we cater to your existing knowledge and experience by reviewing major principles and theory in eyeglasses and/or contact lenses. In doing so, we help you make the most of your study time by focusing only on the key concepts and skills you want to revisit.

Through our courses, you will review a wide variety of optical topics including:
- anatomy and pathology
