Optometrist

Duties and Responsibilities:

Optometrists examine patients’ eyes, test their sight, give advice on visual problems and prescribe and fit spectacles or contact lenses when needed. They are trained to recognise diseases of the eye, such as glaucoma and cataract, as well as general health conditions such as diabetes. They refer patients to medical practitioners when necessary, as well as sometimes sharing the care of patients with chronic conditions.

Salary: median pay would be $108,000

Education:Although applicants to schools must have completed only three years of study at an accredited college or university, most have earned, or will shortly earn, a bachelor’s degree. Undergraduate coursework should include mathematics, English, chemistry, physics and biology. Applicants must take an entrance exam called the Optometry Admission Test (OAT). It is sponsored by the Association of Schools and Colleges of Optometry.
