Some opticians work in stores that sell glasses, contact lenses, and other optical goods. These stores may be stand-alone businesses or parts of larger retail establishments, such as department stores.
Other opticians work as part of a group optometry or medical practice, where optometrists and ophthalmologists provide eye-related medical care to patients. For more information, see the profiles on optometrists and on physicians and surgeons.
Opticians who work in larger retail establishments, such as department stores, may have to work evenings and weekends. Most opticians work full time, although part-time opportunities also are available.
