Job description

Eye4Staff are a recruitment organisation providing staffing solutions in the optical profession throughout the UK.

We are looking for an individual who is reliable, hard-working and keen to develop on their existing skills. A suitable candidate will be able to dispense at least single vision and multi-focals.

As an Optical Assistant, you’ll usually be the first person the patient meets. Optical assistants prepare patients for tests by administering eye drops and directing patients to the appropriate machines or examination rooms. They perform simple diagnostic exams, such as measuring the dimensions of each eye during a contact lens fitting. They may also assist the optometrist during an eye examination if necessary, operating diagnostic machinery or interacting with the patient. Your administrative duties may include obtaining patients’ medical histories and filing them in the proper locations. Assistants also process payments and maintain records of transactions. You will provide patients with fitted eyeglass, frames and contact lenses. You’ll also instruct patients on the use and care of contact lenses and spectacles.
