Optometrist

Odds of Getting In

The odds of getting in are a lot better than the odds of surviving a shark attack (one of the major job search indices used here at Shmoop). Unlike other health professionals, optometrists only need a doctorate or a professional degree, like a Bachelor of Science, to get started. Think you might have what it takes? Get a head start and focus on your geriatric eye care skills or in the development of new technology like contact lenses and glasses.
