Only a third of your teaching time will be spent in lectures. The rest of your learning will be hands-on, divided between practical demonstrations, clinical and lab sessions, and our eye clinic. You’ll also visit local hospital clinics to gain practical experience – plus, there’s the chance to get work experience in the community, spending time with charities like Cam Sight.
Our eye clinic has everything you’ll need to practise your optometry skills, including 15 fully equipped testing and research rooms. You’ll use specialist equipment such slit lamps, keratometers and optical coherence tomographers. And you’ll have access to facilities for assessing and supporting visually impaired people and testing visual stress and colour perception.
