Room setup is key for the opticians/ optometrist but it really is a case of getting used to the room set up so not excepting a vacancy just because you’re used to offer up that is valid but just something you have to come out of your comfort zone four .

The phoropter was invented in 1904 and chains tend to use them more. Optometrists fund it quicker to test with a Phoropter
