When you start your pre-registration year, majority of the time you will start by being on the ‘shop floor’ and dispensing, which means that you might fall under the trap of becoming and talking like a ‘salesperson’. Your assessor does not want to hear about a choice of lens being made due to cost but needs to know you can understand the technicalities of each element. Why are you recommending a specific lens? Or a specific frame? For a specific prescription?
The other element which gets forgotten are the calculations you had spent time on at university. This
book aims to make each step in dispensing easier for you to understand with practice questions for you at the end of the book.
