The BSc Optometry course will enable students to discover the scientific principles that underpin optometry, including the properties of light, the anatomy of the eye and the processing of vision in the brain. Students can take advantage of a one-week clinical placement and attend regular specialist clinics in their final year at the Manchester Royal Eye Hospital. Students graduating with a BSc degree are usually able to register as an optometrist after a one year pre-registration placement. Students will be introduced to the scientific principles that underpin optometry including the properties of light, the anatomy of the eye and the processing of vision in the brain. They will also learn about ophthalmic appliances such as lenses and instrumentation such as retinoscopes. The clinical element of the course will introduce students to general eye examination techniques that they will initially carry out on fellow students followed by volunteer patients in Semester 2.
