Overview

Take a moment to consider the importance of eyesight and the impact it can cause once it is lost. Indeed, caring for the health of others is a noble calling, especially when it comes to something as important as eye care. The scope of Optometry includes the detection of common eye diseases and problems. It also covers the prescription of spectacles and contact lenses.

Our three-year Diploma in Optometry (DOPT) course aims to produce professionally competent optometrists who are in good demand. Due to high prevalence of myopia in children and a rapidly ageing population, quality optometrists are highly sought after.

Science that provides eye care

"The enthusiastic and passionate SP lecturers enabled me to have a fun-filled three years during Diploma in Optometry. SP Optometry Centre’s clinical sessions have shaped me to become a responsible and knowledgeable individual to make important decisions on how to manage our community’s eye care needs, and prevent blindness through early detection of some diseases. With the Optometry that I have obtained, I hope to contribute more towards primary eye care to tackle the challenges associated with ageing community and myopia epidemic."
