Optometry Technology is a 3-year undergraduate program under which, we train students to work as optometry technologists. After undergoing training in subjects of basic medical sciences, students are trained to measure eyesight, prescribe corrective lenses, and detect eye diseases.

Students receive training in a fully equipped optometry laboratory and soft skill training. Apart from assisting an optometrist, they also help patients in inserting and maintaining contact lenses, preparing the examination rooms, and knowledge about the structure of the human eye and various diseases and infections affecting the eyes.
