Students viewing lab test results


The pre-optometry program at Centre offers classes that you need to get into optometry school. In addition, many of our pre-optometry students do internships with local optometrists.


Doctors of Optometry (O.D.s) complete a four-year degree program at a school or college of optometry. Most accepted students have previously completed an undergraduate degree with a major in the sciences, but this is not required. If you have an interest in helping people, and enjoy math and science, consider optometry as a career.


Students interested in pursuing a degree in optometry after Centre should expect to take courses in biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics, and other disciplines.
