Optometrists examine patient's eyes, test their sight, give advice on visual problems and prescribe and fit spectacles or contact lenses.

This distinctive 4-year Optometry degree programme at the University of Hertfordshire integrates theory, research, science and clinical practice from year one. Across all 4 years students will focus on achieving parallel success: as a professional clinician and as a scientist.

The programme integrates the pre-registration period within this 4 year masters programme, meaning that upon completion of your degree you will be a fully registered Optometrist.


First class facilities

You will be able to use our new simulation facilities including dedicated optometry practice cubicles.
