Exploring This Job

It is difficult for students to gain any direct experience on a part-time basis in optometry. The first opportunities afforded students generally come in the clinical phases of their training program. Interested students, however, can visit an optometrist's office and talk to an experienced optometrist. Part-time or summer work for a vision care business or in an optometrist's practice will also expose you to the work environment and routines.
