Veteran Opticians Share The Greatest Accomplishments of Their Careers
  • Getting licensed. This was at the very start of my career after graduating from the opticianry program. The next best accomplishment was having a stable job with great benefits for the past 12+ years. — Yaacov W., ABOC, NCLEC, LDO, FNAO
  • My greatest accomplishment What has been the single best/greatest accomplishment of your optical career? is helping others learn. Nothing makes me happier in this industry than to see others succeed through education and furthering their careers. — Carrie W., MBA, ABOM, NCLEM, CPHQ
  • This question resonates with me. I would point to two standout accomplishments in my career. The first is my current role, steering a thriving ophthalmology group. It has been a remarkable journey marked by growth and transformation, both for me and the organization. The joy I derive from this leadership position and the opportunity to make a positive impact on our patients and the community is immeasurable. The second is passing my NCLE-AC. It represents a significant milestone in my professional development, underlining my dedication to advancing my expertise in the field of opticianry. — Sam W., MBA, NCLE-AC
  • Lots of my accomplishments come back-to-back. Fitting specialty contact lenses on patients that cannot be properly corrected with spectacles has been my primary goal since opticianry school. It wasn’t easy to get to this point, but I did it, and I have changed lives. My patients’ vision improvements are some of my greatest accomplishments. — Jenn Seymour B., LDO, ABO-AC, NCLE-AC
