BS Optometry

About the Bachelor of Science in Optometry at DIMC

Millions of people all over the world suffer from visual impairment and blindness. Uncorrected refractive error is the leading cause of visual impairment globally.

In order to meet this challenge there is a need to develop human resources
including optometrists to provide sustainable service delivery.

Optometry functions in a primary capacity. Optometrists do sight testing and give corrective prescriptions including spectacles. They examine the eyes and if there is any disorder make referrals to the Ophthalmologist for further care. They along with the Ophthalmologist have an important role in the prevention and treatment of blindness.

BS Optometry is a four year program covering all the theoretical and clinical
aspects of training required by an Optometrist to achieve a successful career. Dow University of Health Sciences is the only public sector university in the Sindh province to offer this course.
