Bachelor of Vision Science (OP45)

This course is the first component of a five year dual degree program comprising a three year Bachelor of Vision Science, followed by a two year Master of Optometry (OP85).
Both degrees need to be completed before a graduate can apply for registration as an optometrist.

The profession of Optometry is undergoing expansion in its scope of practice as a result of legislative amendments occurring (or pending) in all states and territories to allow appropriately trained optometrists to use therapeutic pharmaceutical agents in the practice of Optometry. This program increases graduates' depth of knowledge in the areas of general and ocular pharmacology, with training in the therapeutic management of eye disease.
