Doctors of Optometry (O.D.s) complete a challenging four-year degree program at a school or college of optometry. Most accepted students have previously completed an undergraduate degree.
Most pre-optometry students major in the sciences, but this is not required. If you have an interest in helping people, and enjoy math and science, consider optometry as a career.
Pre-optometry students should consult with faculty advisor Professor Marie Nydam.
