Students in Roane State’s Opticianry Program, under the direct supervision of licensed instructors, operate an on-campus optical clinic.
This clinic, located in T-209 on the Harriman Campus, is open to RSCC students and employees, as well as, their family and friends.
The clinic operates during fall and spring semesters only.
Persons wishing to purchase glasses must come in during posted clinic hours and bring with them a current written prescription from their eye doctor. Roane State Optical Clinic does not provide eye exams or contact lenses.
Patients should come in toward the beginning of the clinic so that the student optician has sufficient time to complete their work.
Most eyeglass frames are available at no charge and the lenses, coatings etc. are priced at wholesale. The actual cost depends on the patient’s prescription, lens design and other options. We have computer glasses, children’s glasses, progressive lenses, prescription sunglasses, safety glasses and all types of specialty glasses.
Patients will need to return, usually in 2 to 3 weeks, for a second visit to pick up their glasses. At this time, the student will dispense the glasses and be graded on the project.
Tuesday 9:45am - 12:30am
Thursday 9:45am - 12:30am, 1:30pm - 4:15pm
Appointments may be made during clinic hours by calling: 865-882-4635.
