Hillsborough Community College Opticianry Program developed a form of "distance learning" education for Opticianry students. The program has created a viable option for those who can not attend "on-campus" classes. Since its inception in 2000, the on-line section of Opticianry students has grown rapidly every year and is at the forefront of on-line education for Ophthalmic Dispensing.

The On-line Program provides the Students with streaming video lectures, text lectures and "course packs" to supplement the required textbooks.
