Optometric technicians will perform a variety of tasks to assist the optometrist in eye examinations and corrective procedures. They record patient medical histories and help prepare the patient for the vision examination. They also assist with tests that help ensure the accurate diagnosis and treatment of a diseased eye. This may include patient pre-testing such as visual acuity, color vision, depth perception, pupil reflexes, visual field testing, pressure inside the eye, and blood pressure. They are usually in charge of making sure that the patient understands the proper care and use of glasses and contact lenses that the doctor has prescribed.
