Many ophthalmic assistants and technicians have no opportunity for formal training and learn their duties on the job. Experience and repetition alone may become excellent teachers. To paraphrase Sir William Osler, experience without knowledge is to sail an uncharted course, but knowledge without experience is never to go to sea at all. The Ophthalmic Assistant was written expressly for ancillary ophthalmic workers who assist eye doctors in the day-to-day care of eye patients.
