Many people in India need some kind of vision correction (this includes children) and which results in vision impairment or blindness. It is because they do not have access to an eye examination. India also has a huge number of patients with cataract. Well trained technical staff and assistants help and ensure that eye care services are provided effectively and efficiently. The need for trained eye care delivery professionals is not only a challenge but an excellent opportunity as a profession. As the population ages, future demand for eye care services will increase. Enhancing access to these services will require an increase in the number of eye care professionals, as well as more efficient use of existing professionals. 

Who is an Ophthalmic Assistant 

An Ophthalmic Assistant is one who performs eye examination to check for vision problems or eye diseases. He/she is trained to use the various ophthalmic instruments to prescribe eye glasses or lenses as required to improve vision. He/she is trained to administer eye drops, prepare the patient for examination or surgery, guide the patient with the use of eye glasses and lenses, teach eye exercises and be in charge of patient care overall. 

What are the Job Prospects & Career Progression 

A trained Ophthalmic Assistant can decrease the workload of the eye care physician and add value to the value chain of the health care system. With experience and skill, he/she can rise up to be an Optometrist. In this capacity, he/she can assist Ophthalmologists in a hospital or a clinic.
