Bachelor of Optometry - Bachelor of Optometry Course , Eligibility, Fees


4 Years Full-Time Campus-Based | Recognized by UGC

Optometry is a 4 years duration program which includes a 1-year internship.

Blindness and vision impairment place a significant economic burden on families, communities, and society.  About 85% of all vision impairment and 75% of blindness globally could be avoided, prevented or cured if the properly trained personnel and care facilities existed. Uncorrected refractive error is the major cause of avoidable vision impairment, and the second most common cause of blindness. Millions of children are losing educational opportunities and adults are excluded from productive working lives, with severe economic and social consequences without appropriate optical correction. Individuals and families are pushed into a cycle of deepening poverty because of their eyesight. 

Optometry is a profession deal with eyes and related structures, visual systems, and vision information processing in humans. An optometrist can do comprehensive eye examination, diagnoses, and management of diseases and disorders of the visual/ocular system. Enhancing access to these services will require an increase in the number of eye care professionals, as well as more efficient utilization of existing professionals. More employment opportunities and pursuing higher studies are the main advantages of this program.
