Diploma in Optometry (DOPT - S67)

The Gift of Sight through Science

Vision is not merely the ability to see, but a portal to a world of possibilities. The Diploma in Optometry (DOPT) empowers you with the valuable skills and knowledge to fulfil your calling in the noble and rewarding field of eye-care.

Develop skills in eyecare

Throughout your educational journey, we foster an appreciation for optimal eye health and eyesight, equipping you with the competencies needed to skilfully manage conditions such as myopia and presbyopia, detect common eye diseases and correct vision with spectacles and contact lenses.

Real-world training and exposure

Beyond the classroom, you will engage in hands-on training to advance your  skills. Harness state-of-the-art technology at the SP Optometry Centre and work with real clients from the first year, levelling up in responsibilities as you hone your skills. Through industrial attachments, a 22-week internship and overseas attachments, you’ll broaden your perspectives, learn best practices from the industry and network with peers and professionals.

Accreditation that opens doors

Become a licensed optometrist registered with the Optometrists and Opticians Board (OOB), governed by the Ministry of Health. This license opens doors to a wide range of career prospects in areas such as community optometry clinics, ophthalmology clinics, hospitals, multinational manufacturing companies, or research institutions. If you are enterprising, create a canvas for innovation and expertise with your very own practice.

If you yearn to illuminate lives through eye care, join us in the Diploma in Optometry course for a fulfilling career.
