1) What is the most effective way for an optician to stop the spread of infection in the dispensary?(Required)
2) Which instrument does an optician use to measure monocular pupillary distance in a patient with anisometropia?(Required)
3) A patient comes into the dispensary to pick up her new task-specific office eyeglasses. Her Rx is as follows:

OD +1.25 −0.75 × 080
OS +1.50 −0.50 × 120
Add OU +2.50

Her office eyeglasses were made with the following Rx:

OD +2.50 −0.75 × 080
OS +2.75 −0.50 × 120

When the optician is dispensing the eyeglasses to the patient, where should he ask her to look to confirm her visual acuity?(Required)
4) A 63-year-old patient currently using OU −2.50 single vision distance eyeglasses has recently been diagnosed with cataracts OU. He removes his eyeglasses to read and has no astigmatism that needs correction. He is having cataract surgery in 4 weeks. He was given a pamphlet of information about cataract surgery that included descriptions of different types of intra-ocular lenses (IOL).

He asks the optician at the doctor’s office to help him identify an IOL that will improve his distance vision and maintain his ability to read. Which of the 3 IOL options would be preferred for this patient?(Required)
5) When should opticians wash their hands to maintain a hygienic dispensary environment?(Required)
6) What must an optician do after calibrating a pupilometer, before measuring a patient’s pupillary distance with it?(Required)
7) An optician is dispensing new eyeglasses to a patient. They notice the temple tips are a bit long behind the patient’s ears. What equipment will the optician use to adjust the eyeglasses?(Required)
8) A patient visits his optician, Clinton, to order new eyeglasses. He has a low budget. He asks Clinton for the cheapest option that will be appropriate for his Rx, which is:

OS +6.00 −0.75 × 175

What lenses should Clinton recommend?(Required)
9) A 20-year-old patient has the following Rx:

OD +2.00 −1.00 × 180
OS +1.75 −0.75 × 170

She asks her optician what kind of vision problem she has. How should the optician define her refractive condition?(Required)
10) The optician receives a pair of completed eyeglasses from the lab. The eyeglasses were ordered with the following parameters:

OD −4.00 −0.50 × 180
OS −4.50 −0.25 × 175
Pupillary distance 28 mm/31 mm
Optical centre height OD 21 mm, OS 21 mm

The optician measures the eyeglasses using the lensometer and finds that the OD pupillary distance is 30.5 mm. How must the optician proceed?(Required)
