The Bachelor of Optometry (BOptom) is accredited by the Optometry Council of Australia and New Zealand. This programme enables you to develop communication, empathy and problem-solving skills, particularly working with children, the elderly and the partially sighted. It will prepare you for registration as an Optometrist, and you’ll be equipped to diagnose visual problems or impairments, advise on the prevention of vision loss, prescribe and provide treatment. This programme covers both theory and the clinical aspects of Optometry, preparing you for the workforce after graduation. Entry into the BOptom is limited and competitive. You will be selected on the basis of academic merit and personal qualities exhibited during the admission interview (MMI). There are 60 places available each year.
