Universities Offering Optometry, SSCE, and UTME Subject Requirements

Optometrist
One of the competitive healthcare courses at universities is Optometry. We can compare the course with the likes of Medicine and Surgery, Nursing, and Pharmacy. However, only a few universities are offering it in Nigeria.


This post will be detailed with the list of the universities offering Optometry, the course background, SSCE and JAMB UTME subjects combination candidates must have or write before being offered the admission, and much more.

What is Optometry?

According to the London College of Optometrist, is the study of examining the eyes to detect defects in vision, signs of injury, ocular diseases or abnormality, and problems with general health, such as high blood pressure or diabetes. They make a health assessment, offer clinical advice, prescribe spectacles or contact lenses, and refer patients for further treatment, when necessary.


Optometry is a university-based course rather than polytechnic or colleges in Nigeria. However, a few polytechnics and colleges are running the course at National Diploma or Higher level.


Admission seekers can consider choosing Optometry during the JAMB UTME/DE registration or while making a change of institutions and courses.
