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

"SP optometry has made me understand the importance of healthcare, and particularly eye care. I became more knowledgeable and confident in providing proper eye health services to the community, having been equipped with the skills to examine eye health and manage a patient’s condition professionally. Our passionate lecturers brought the learning experiences to a higher level in unique ways, making lessons and clinical session engaging. I aspire to refine my optometry skills further so that I can serve the community better."
