Masters degrees in Ophthalmics involve advanced study of the eye and its diseases, equipping postgraduates with the skills to treat ocular disorders and sight problems.
Related postgraduate specialisms include Public Health and Clinical Ophthalmology. Entry requirements typically include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Nursing, Medicine or Biology.
In a nursing or clinical context, ophthalmic professionals are responsible for diagnosing and treating a range of eye diseases and vision issues such as glaucoma and strabismus. If you study a Masters in Ophthalmology, you could specialise in corrective surgery or medical aftercare, and eventually work within places like health centres, hospitals, prisons and community centres.
If you decide to go down the public health route, ophthalmologists can offer advice and information about policy changes and regulation for the prevention and reduction of sight loss, as well as the best way to aid those with visual disabilities. For example, this could include working on behalf of the government, implementing new policies on workplace health and safety, or advising on how to improve public services like transport for disabled individuals.
