Optometry is now positioned as a primary health care profession involved in the critical, preventive and rehabilitative aspects of eye care. Optometrists, therefore, form an integral part of the primary healthcare team. As a major stakeholder in the training of a large populace of optometrists and visual scientists in the Country and beyond our borders, the Department of Optometry and Visual Science acknowledges its international recognition hence, seeks to provide high standard training for both undergraduate and postgraduate optometry programmes and research.
Realizing that having a high quality optometric educational system is central to addressing the critical eye care needs of Ghana, the Department of Optometry and Visual Science, runs a six-year undergraduate programme leading to a O.D. (Optometry) degree. The graduates of this programme will be professionally competent and on an equal professional status with those trained elsewhere in the world.
