Optometrist

Qualifications

If you get your undergraduate degree (not a necessity but helpful in the job market), add four more years of optometry school. Once you pass the National Boards in Optometry you will be an O.D., or doctor of Optometry.

If you have excellent organization and management skills, are entrepreneurial, have good communication skills, are highly motivated and ambitious, then you'll be a great optometrist.
