Optometry is the branch of health services concerned with the examination, diagnosis, and treatment of conditions or impairments of the vision system. Optometrists are highly trained, state licensed practitioners who examine eyes and related structures to detect the presence of vision problems, eye diseases, and other eye-related problems. The employment of optometrists is expected to grow 18%.*
Our pre-optometry program provides a basic body of knowledge to meet the admission requirements for schools of optometry. Admission to a school of optometry follows the fulfillment of requirements of the desired professional school in the completion of a Bachelor of Science in Biology.
*According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, these projected growth rates are from 2016-2026.
