I recently found out about the Ophthalmic Technician career and I am very interested in it. In Portugal that career option doesn't exist, the tasks are performed by Orthoptists like me, but as an Ophthalmic Technician I would be able to focus in the tasks that I'm really interested.
I have tried to get some help from the jcahpo.org but they didn't get back to me so far.
Does anyone know how can a foreigner like me (I am currently living and working in Portugal) start a career as an OT? Of course it would imply me moving to the US, but I'm willing to. :)
