Exploring a career in optometry

A career with a view

A great choice for STEM students

Optometry attracts people who love variety and a new challenge every time they turn up for work. While there is regular routine, no day is ever the same.

You’ll be working with people from all walks of life – you’ll hear their stories and then it will be up to you to make decisions that will transform their quality of life. It’s an awe-inspiring responsibility, but it’s a big part of a role that never gets boring.
