Masters degrees in Optometry teach postgraduates the skills to test and correct eyesight, and to diagnose visual disruptions. They also include training in the treatment and management of vision changes.
Related subjects include Clinical Optometry and Vision Sciences. Entry requirements typically include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Medicine or Biology.
Optometrists are responsible for a range of practices for correcting and managing eyesight. These include performing eye exams and vision tests to detect certain eye abnormalities such as astigmatism, and prescribing and dispensing visual aids like glasses and contact lenses.
Courses in this field will build your understanding of the causes for eye abnormalities and vision disruption, with some programmes including an investigation of the anatomy of the eye. Practical training may also be given in the vision testing process, where you could work with patients directly to increase your professional experience.
Upon graduation, you could work in either the public or private sector. For example, you might offer eye testing and correcting services within a business, a healthcare centre or on behalf of a charity working in community centres and prisons.
