Developing scientists who can work with ophthalmic industries in the development of new technologies, diagnostic instruments, and patient care options.

Vision Science is the study of the sensory processes that underlie vision, and the development and use of vision-related technologies. This broad discipline degree provides comprehensive knowledge and direct training in areas relevant to a career in Vision Science such as: Optics, anatomy and functioning of the eye, eye disorders, clinical optometry, ocular therapy, sensation and perception, psychophysics, and research design, methods and experimentation.

Students who complete this degree may be eligible to apply to the Master of Clinical Optometry degree on a competitive basis.

While we cannot currently project the ATAR cut off for this program, it will be lower than the dual Bachelor of Vision Science/Master of Clinical Optometry program.
