As the diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases, known as ophthalmic medicine, steadily grows in complexity, the demand for health care workers with specialized knowledge and skills in ophthalmic medical technology is growing as well. Ophthalmic medical technologists work with leading-edge equipment, including lasers and imaging systems, to provide quality patient care. This bachelor's degree program provides students with a two-year foundation in core sciences, followed by third- and fourth-year studies that specialize in ophthalmic medical technology and visual science. The academic training of students registered in the third and fourth years of the program takes place at the University of Ottawa Eye Institute, located on the general campus of the Ottawa Hospital. This program combines clinical, hands-on experience with theoretical training.
