Ashley completes level 7 qualification

Posted on 04th April 2013

After 8 months of lectures, workshops, course work and exams Ashley was presented with her level 7 Optical Assistant qualification this week.

The graduation event at Surgeons hall celebrated the hard work of a small number of optical assistants who have now attained the highest level of qualification in their field.

The Worshipful Company of Spectacle makers and NHS Education Scotland provided the course in Optical Care to develop the potential of optical assistants. Ashley feels it has been not only interesting but hugely useful in her day to day work. She now has a much better understanding of the eye conditions that we deal with in the practice, and of the  nature and purpose of the highly technical cameras and scanners that are used. She has  enjoyed developing her knowledge of spectacle and contact lenses and the multitude of options available in both these days.

Her homework, and coursework put the optometrists through their paces at times! We are exceptionally proud of her hard work and achievement.

Well done Ashley.
