### How do you measure a progressive lens?

• A.

Measure from the bottom of the frame to bottom eyelid.

• B.

Measure from center of nose to center of pupil.

• C.

Measure from bottom of lens to center of the pupil.

• D.

Measure from pupil center to pupil center.

C. Measure from bottom of lens to center of the pupil.
Explanation
To measure a progressive lens, you need to measure from the bottom of the lens to the center of the pupil. This measurement is important because progressive lenses have a gradual change in prescription power from the top to the bottom, so the measurement helps ensure that the correct prescription is aligned with the wearer's pupil. By measuring from the bottom of the lens, you can accurately determine the placement of the progressive power in the lens.

### What is the "B" measurement?

• A.

The diagonal measurement of the lens.

• B.

The measurement from pupil to pupil.

• C.

The vertical measurement of a lens.

• D.

The horizontal measurement of a lens.

C. The vertical measurement of a lens.
Explanation
The "B" measurement refers to the vertical measurement of a lens. This means that it is the distance from the top to the bottom of the lens. It is important to know this measurement when fitting eyeglasses or contact lenses to ensure that they properly cover the vertical area of the eye and provide clear vision.

### What does PD stand for?

• A.

Physical Dimension.

• B.

Pupillary Dimension.

• C.

Prescribed Distance.

• D.

Pupillary Distance.

D. Pupillary Distance.
Explanation
PD stands for Pupillary Distance. Pupillary Distance refers to the distance between the centers of the pupils of the eyes. It is an important measurement used in the fitting of eyeglasses or contact lenses. Knowing the PD helps to ensure that the lenses are properly aligned with the eyes, which is crucial for optimal vision correction.

### What type of lens material do you recommend for a -7.00 sph. prescription?

• A.

Hi-index

• B.

Polycarbonate.

• C.

Mid-index

• D.

Glass

A. Hi-index
Explanation
Hi-index lens material is recommended for a -7.00 sph. prescription. Hi-index lenses are made from a material that has a higher refractive index, meaning they can bend light more efficiently. This allows for thinner and lighter lenses, making them more comfortable to wear. Hi-index lenses are especially beneficial for high prescriptions like -7.00 sph. as they reduce the thickness and weight of the lenses, improving the overall aesthetics and comfort for the wearer.

### What type of lens material would you choose to go into a three piece drill mount?

• A.

Mid-index material

• B.

Glass.

• C.

Hi-index 1.70

• D.

Trivex

• E.

D. Trivex
Explanation
Trivex is the recommended lens material for a three-piece drill mount. Trivex is a lightweight material that offers excellent impact resistance and durability, making it suitable for drill mount frames. It also provides good optical clarity and is resistant to scratches. Additionally, Trivex has a lower density than glass, making it more comfortable to wear. Mid-index material, Hi-index 1.70, and glass may not be as suitable for a drill mount due to factors such as weight, fragility, and potential for cracking during the drilling process.

### What is the minimum "B" height for an Office Lens?

• A.

16 mm

• B.

23 mm

• C.

26

• D.

29

D. 29
Explanation
The minimum "B" height for an Office Lens is 29 mm. This means that the Office Lens requires a minimum height of 29 mm to function properly.

### What do you recommend to a salesman on the road most of the day?

• A.

A great seafood joint.

• B.

Hi-index material

• C.

Grooved frames

• D.

Drivewear lenses.

• E.

Tinted lenses

D. Drivewear lenses.
Explanation
Drivewear lenses are recommended for a salesman on the road most of the day because they are designed to adapt to different lighting conditions, providing optimal vision and comfort. These lenses are specifically designed for driving, offering excellent clarity and reducing glare from the road and other vehicles. They also provide protection from harmful UV rays, making them a practical choice for someone who spends a lot of time outdoors.

### What patient should never where AR?

• A.

Kids

• B.

Grandparents

• C.

Nurses

• D.

Receptionists

• E.

None of the above

E. None of the above
Explanation
The question asks which patients should never wear AR (presumably referring to Augmented Reality). The answer "none of the above" suggests that there are no specific patients who should never wear AR, implying that AR can be used by anyone, including kids, grandparents, nurses, and receptionists.

### Which of these frame materials is the lightest for frames?

• A.

Titanium

• B.

Nickel

• C.

Stainless steel

• D.

Monel

A. Titanium
Explanation
Titanium is the lightest frame material among the options given. It is known for its high strength-to-weight ratio, making it a popular choice for various applications, including frame construction. Titanium frames are lightweight, durable, and resistant to corrosion, making them ideal for eyeglasses or other products where weight is a crucial factor. Nickel, stainless steel, and monel are comparatively heavier materials and are not as lightweight as titanium.

### What frame features would best suite a person with a round face?

• A.

Square angles and lines.

• B.

Deep vertical -mid temple

• C.

Rimless, high temple - smaller verses larger

• D.

Angles, sharp corners

D. Angles, sharp corners
Explanation
Angles and sharp corners would best suit a person with a round face because they can help create the illusion of more defined facial features and add structure to the face. These frame features can help balance out the softness of a round face shape and make it appear more angular. By choosing frames with angles and sharp corners, the face can be visually elongated and the overall look can be more flattering.

### When troubleshooting adjustments for progressive lens wearers always?

• A.

Check the fit of the frame.

• B.

Check the seg height measurement.

• C.

Check the prescription.

• D.

Check the PD.

• E.

All of the above.

E. All of the above.
Explanation
The correct answer is "All of the above." When troubleshooting adjustments for progressive lens wearers, it is important to check all of these factors. Checking the fit of the frame ensures that the glasses are comfortable and properly positioned on the wearer's face. Checking the seg height measurement ensures that the progressive lens is positioned correctly for optimal vision. Checking the prescription ensures that the lenses are accurately made according to the wearer's visual needs. Checking the PD (pupillary distance) ensures that the lenses are aligned properly with the wearer's eyes. Considering all of these factors is crucial in troubleshooting adjustments for progressive lens wearers.

### What do patients want mostly from their opticians?

• A.

Cool glasses

• B.

Light weight frames

• C.

Inexpensive glasses

• D.

To be listened to.

• E.

None of the above

D. To be listened to.
Explanation
Patients mostly want to be listened to by their opticians. This means they want their opticians to pay attention to their concerns, questions, and preferences regarding their eye health and eyewear. By actively listening, opticians can better understand the needs and expectations of their patients, leading to a more personalized and satisfactory experience. This emphasizes the importance of effective communication and patient-centered care in the optometry field.
