I love and pride myself in being in the optical field. Here, in my state of Nebraska, being an optician does not mean much. We are not required to get certifications, our pay is very low, and all the help wanted ads say "no experience necessary" and "salespeople wanted". I feel I am ready to move past the point of having my knowledge and skills not acknowledged or commended as I feel an optician should be. Unfortunately at this time my fiancé has a very nice job here in Nebraska and I am not wanting to leave here yet. I was curious if there are any at home optical data entry positions. I have been searching and am unable to find anything. Maybe a lab or online company possibly? Also, would there ever be any need or want for an at home optical data or am I just dreaming of a career that does not exist?
