What is an ophthalmic medical technician? Think eyes, lasers, surgery and cutting-edge medical equipment all mixed into one exciting field that is in high demand.
Blending medicine with technology, the ophthalmic medical technician can initiate patient exams, measure and record visual stats, perform diagnostic procedures, assist in clinical and surgical settings, prepare patients for eye-transplant surgery, and more.
As an ophthalmic medical technician, you will have direct patient care as well as work alongside with – and learn from – very specialized doctors in a growing and evolving field.
At Pima Medical Institute, your courses will introduce you to aspects of the complete eye exam, surgical assisting, ultrasound, digital photography and light-based imaging of the eye with scanning lasers.
