A social networking site can be a good way to make connections with people with similar interests and goals. They can be a way for you to connect with or "meet" other optical professionals that you would not have had the opportunity to before.

Meeting people and staying connected with classmates from high school or college and former colleagues, with friends and even clients is a major benefit of social networking sites.

 a Superb Spot for Opticians on Web

Need a discontinued frame part? Need a new job? Need to vent about the unbelievably annoying patient that just walked out of your optical? Since 1995, OptiBoard has been the place to visit online for Opticians and ophthalmic professionals.

Visit, and choose one of the many forums and discussion groups available. With over 12,500 members, someone online is sure to have that frame front you're looking for - try posting in "General Discussion". The "Job Board" may hold a new employment opportunity. In the "Just Conversation" forum, you can talk about anything (from politics to that patient who just asked you to change their green, crusty nose pads for the third time this year)!

OptiBoard is a great place to expand horizons. There are a wide variety of people from the 30 year (plus) veterans in retail optics- to the large and small optical shop owners, to the lens manufacturer technical experts, to opticians just starting in the field. Each member adds their style and expertise (and sometimes their odd sense of reality) to the discussions that take place every day.

There have been over 295,000 posts to the site since 1995 here is a sample of current & classic topics:
