Goodwin's Ophthalmic Science Department to Open Optical Training Store
Ophthalmic Science department of Goodwin College will open its Optical Training Store, licensed by the Connecticut's Department of Health. Under the direct supervision of a clinical instructor, the department's students will use the skills learned during their previous three semesters to assist with and to fit eyewear for Goodwin College students, the college's employees, and on-campus employees of Goodwin contractors. Naturally the store will model a setting of a traditional optical practice. The store will operate on a walk-in basis to patients presenting prescriptions less than a year old. It will not work with insurance plans, but the store says that it will offer "substantial" discounts. To find out more about the optical training program and the store, go to Ophthalmic Science department of Goodwin College.
