‘The options are endless. You can work in hospitals helping people with complicated eye related problems, be involved in pioneering research, become a teacher of optometry or even run your own optometry business. It’s an incredibly challenging and well respected profession, offering a good living with flexible working hours.’
Entry requirements vary between universities but you will usually need high grades, typically a minimum of AAB at A-level, or equivalent, with at least two science subjects.
