    New Vision Care Assistant Program at SCCO!!!

    The Southern California College of Optometry (SCCO), Vision Care Assistant Program (VCA), educates students to provide a wide range of support services in an eye care practice in an efficient and professional manner. The program is designed to teach the skills that will enable the assistant to become a highly qualified and valued member in the eye and vision care field.

    VCA is a rewarding career as one can work in a variety of settings – private practice, clinical or retail. The U.S. population is aging and their eye care needs will increase, placing a high demand for skilled personnel. Potential employers will recognize the prestige associated with a certificate from SCCO. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average annual earnings in this field are $32,700 per year with additional incentives available in certain settings.

    The educational format of the VCA program is a combination of classroom, laboratory and clinical experience. Hands-on experience in office management and in-depth knowledge of the equipment, procedures and techniques common in eye care practices will be emphasized. Students will enjoy an education that fully prepares them for a career working with doctors and patients in an eye care practice.
