The terminology may be different in the UK, but in the USA, an optician is not a medical professional, but rather someone who makes eyeglasses according to a prescription from a medical professional: either an opthalmologist (who is trained in diseases of the eye generally) or an optometrist (who is specialized in measuring visual ability and prescribing the proper corrective lenses for eyeglasses).
