Rochester NY High School Optics Lab Provides Career Training

Teacher and NYS Certified Optician Logan Newman started an optical program at Rochester, NY’s East High School to teach students how to make eyeglasses. Their patients are their classmates and fellow students, referred to the optics lab by teachers or the school nurse. Volunteer eye doctors visit the school once a week to conduct the actual exams.

This innovative program not only trains students for a future career, it provides a service to students who may be on the verge of dropping out because they cannot see well enough to learn. What a terrific idea!
