Vision Care Technology

The Department of Vision Care Technology is the only nationally accredited opticianry program within The City University of New York. The department is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and is the largest opticianry program in the nation. The associate degree in ophthalmic dispensing prepares a student for national certification and state licensure. The graduate of the associate degree program is eligible to take national examinations administered by the ABO (American Board of Opticianry) and NCLE (National Contact Lens Examination). In addition, only an associate degree in ophthalmic dispensing from a program accredited by the Commission on Opticianry Accreditation will qualify graduates to take other state board licensing examinations. Many of our graduates enroll in the CUNY BA/BS program and major in areas such as business or science. A number of graduates enroll in the City Tech BS program in Health Services Administration.
