In our ageing population the demand for eye care is expected to increase, and optometrists are ideally placed to help meet this demand.
The programme is based on both fundamental academic sciences as well as detailed clinical and practical studies. The emphasis is very much on the optometric service to patients.
You will see patients in the University’s own eye clinic, and attend local hospitals where you are instructed in the recognition and management of eye disease by senior ophthalmologists.
Our three-year programme enables you to progress towards practising as a registered optometrist – you will need to complete a year’s pre-registration training after graduation in order to do this.
