    School or Apprentice

    I guess this question is for experienced Opticians. In the U.S. is it better to be schooled or apprentice to become an optician. I have about 5 years experience in South America and it is probably useless in the states. I want to relocate to Florida and I dont know if i should go to school or apprentice to be eligible for a license.

    used stand

    I second the nomination!!! The techs at VSI are so helpful.
  4. Call Leo Hadley at VSI. He is member "opticlabrat" on this forum. I have been buying equipment from him for almost 10 years. Everything I have ever bought was like brand new, and the support is incredible. Its so nice to work with a company who really goes out of their way to help you.
  5. How did you get your license and which of the two choices are better?

    Looking to purchase used slit lamp

    I second this recommendation. VSI is always there when I need equipment or just advice. Not only do they have great deals, but they also warranty everything they sell.
  8. Do you still have this phoroptor available?

    Vacation in New York City

    I was in New York for a few days last week and I was shocked at how large it really is. I have seen pictures and television but I just stood on the street almost afraid too move. I am so impressed by the U.S.A. I did not want to leave. I bought an I love N.Y. SHIRT and even though I was very cold, I spent a whole day wandering central park and riding the train through the city. I hope someday to come to America forever.

    Ultraoptics coater problem

    Almost Every time i coat a lens, I get a small circle in the middle of the lens. Sometimes it is about 2mm wide, other times it is only about 1/2mm wide. It almost looks like it is etched into the lens. I just bought this coater from another website and it worked great for about a week. I have no warrantee and the person i bought it from will not return my emails. ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED!!!!
