Optometry

Adviser: Joyce Azevedo

The admission requirements to colleges of optometry vary, so the student should follow the catalog from the school of his/her choice. (See the Association of Schools and Colleges of Optometry’s website for a list of accredited optometry programs-opted.org). However, all place emphasis on biology, chemistry, mathematics and physics. Additional courses in the areas of fine arts, language, literature, and the social sciences are usually necessary.

A minimum of two years of preoptometric study is required. However, additional study increases the prospects of acceptance into professional training.

Direct individual inquiries are welcomed by the American Optometric Association (aoa.org).
