Optician Resume

An optician resume is written by a person who tests the patients' eyes and tells them about their eyesight power and accordingly makes lenses for them. Though they test eyes and dispense eye lenses and glasses, they don't indulge into any kind of treatment or surgery. They do remain up-to-date with a ll the latest developments taking place in the field of eye care. They may have their own private practice or may be employed with hospitals or clinics.

They have special expertise in the field of optics which enable them to work on and develop equipment for eye sight correction. The registered/ licensed opticians also design lenses and artificial implants to correct certain cosmetic or anatomical irregularities in the patients.

They are all affiliated to certain regulatory bodies, which make sure that they all adhere to the medical practice standards and have their professional liability insurance in place.

The work that they must specialize in includes lensometer (used for measuring the right power in the eyeglasses or lenses that are being made for the patient), lens cutter (to properly and symmetrically cut the lens to fit it properly into the frames, etc.

Now before you write the resume for this post, certain points must be very clear to you. These are the very points that will help you write a good and an effective resume. These are as follows:

  • Start with the objective statement - It is necessary that you start your resume with an impressive objective statement. This should clearly communicate to the recruiter the amount of dedication you are willing to put into the job at hand.

  • Follow a definite structure - There are various resume formats that can be used by an individual. But the choice depends upon the specific need. The types of formats are- chronological, functional, combination and targeted resume. All of them have specific differences in their flow and structure. The use of a particular format depends on the type of your work experience till now. But for most of the cases, we can use combination resume format.

  • Keep it short - Don't let the resume run for lengths of pages. It has to be concise and precise in its contents. The recruiter doesn't have much time to go through long resumes.

  • Check it before you send it - Not a very healthy prospect it seems if the recruiter were to find a mistake in your resume. It will spoil your chances of getting the job. This is why you must check the resume at least twice,l after writing, for any mistakes in the body.

  • Update any contact numbers and company addresses - It is possible that the phone numbers of your references or the old companies may have changed at the time of your writing the resume. In this case, the recruiter will not be able to contact them. This is why, you must, while providing such information, check for the updated numbers and changed addresses of the previous companies before writing them down in your resume.
