Curriculum

Year One

  • The first year introduces students to the basic science relevant to optometry including biochemistry, human anatomy, and physiology, physical and geometrical optics. Students are also introduced to courses in inter-personal skills which help develop elementary practical skills used in optometric practice.

Year Two

  • The second year builds on the introductory topics on year one and introduces the students to the more specialized subject areas in optometry and ophtalmic pathologies. Students study more advanced optometric procedures and instrumentation.

Year Three

  • The third year of the programme develops the student's practical skill level with emphasis on clinical areas. The students learn on more specialised subjects like contact lens, low vision, occupational optometry, binocular vision and geriatrics. Analytical and research skills are developed within the third year project/dissertation.

Year Four

  • The final year (Internship) of the programme develops the student's practical skill level to the highest standard with emphasis on clinical areas. Practical skills are fine tuned with extensive time with the optometry and ophthalmology clinics.
