Pinellas Park, FL-Transitions Optical Inc., through its Partners in Education program, now offers "Internet Resources for Eye-care Professionals," an American Board of Opticianry-approved course designed to help eye-care professionals use the Internet to enhance their professional growth and better meet the needs of their customers.

Industry veteran and master optician Mike DiSanto created the course, which covers how the Internet can be used to find information on topics ranging from the anatomy and conditions of the eye, to optical terminology, to the latest on lens designs, materials, and enhancements.

"Currently, tens of thousands of Web sites deal solely with health matters," said Carole Bratteig, manager, education and training, Transitions. "Because the Internet is so immense, it can be intimidating or overwhelming to try to locate reliable information. We hope this guide will be a helpful start."
