Home / Academics / Optometry

Optometry is one of the fastest-growing healthcare fields in the world. As an optometrist, you will have the satisfaction of improving the lives of people from all age groups – helping a child improve in their schooling through better vision, assisting the elderly to adapt to age-related low vision, or even diagnosing signs of diabetes and hypertension in at-risk patients.

Midwestern University’s optometry programs prepare you for long-term success, thanks to our experienced and caring faculty and comprehensive facilities. You will study the most advanced principles in the field and then practice them with real patients in our state-of-the-art Midwestern University Eye Institute. Our commitment to making you “Day One Ready” for your career, in concert with our interdisciplinary approach to education, will give you a dynamic, rewarding education.

The really, really great thing about this school is the pre-clinic. When I came to interview, I was surprised to hear there would be 26 chairs in the lab! Everyone is either the patient or the doctor at all times; we never have to wait.. ”
