Course summary

Did you know that most people value their sight above all other senses? That’s not surprising considering how important vision is to our everyday lives. Vision is a complicated process involving not just our eyes, but our brains and nervous system.Studying for an Optometry degree you will discover the fascinating way in which the visual system works and learn to help patients of all ages to keep their eyes healthy and achieve the best vision possible.You will explore everything from the physiology and psychology of vision, to how to conduct an eye test, prescribe glasses and contact lenses and detect signs of injury or disease (both in the eye and the rest of the body). You will practise your new skills in the range of specialist clinics that are available in our on-campus eye clinic and you will also visit local hospital eye clinics to further broaden your experience.Students on the Masters in Optometry/BSc (Hons) Optometry course have a joint intake. Those who enter the course and achieve an average of over 60% in the second year are eligible to apply for transfer into the MOptom programme.
