About Association of Dispensing Opticians NZ Inc. (ADONZ)
A Dispensing Optician is a registered health care practitioner that is registered with the Optometrists and Dispensing Opticians Board.
The role of a Dispensing Optician is to interpret prescriptions provided by an Optometrist or Ophthalmologist.
With our technical expertise, a Dispensing Optician offers advice on suitable lens types, frames and styling, taking into account, lifestyle and specific visual requirements.
It is essential that the correct facial measurements are taken to ensure correct fit and positioning of spectacles for clarity of vision.
We offer advice to partially sighted patients on low vision aids to assist with their daily tasks.
Dispensing Opticians are also trained in spectacle making, adjustments and repairs.
For expert advice, call into your local Optical practice to discuss your visual requirements.
