The Vocational course is a three-year programme that consists of a combination of Practical, Theory and Generic (provided by TISS-SVE) courses.
The three-year program will be divided into 6 semesters; 2 semesters per year. 1st year will be a Diploma, 2nd year will be Advance Diploma & 3rd year will be a Degree. The program is a work-integrated training which includes on-the-job training (practical) for 4 to 5 days a week and 1 day of theory training. The courses also include a generic module for the overall development of the candidate.
A graduate of B. Voc.in OPT is an all-rounder as far as technologies in a optometry department is concerned. 80% of what we perceive comes through our sense of sight. This makes our eye sight a very important sense organ. Many problems and diseases related to eyes can be treated/ cured if detected early. In order to be sure about the clarity of vision/eyesight, it is very important to have regular eye check-ups with Eye Care Professionals. But as there is high possibility that, Ophthalmologists won't be available everywhere, that's where an Optometrist can help out in treating few of these eye problems.
The need for such professionals has been expressed not only by the Healthcare Industry Employers, but also the Consumers of this Industry, i.e., patients. Considering this dearth of well-trained & qualified personnel’s in this field, this Three Year Graduation Program of B. Voc. in Optometry is formulated. This course envisages in building an overall expertise in the student with respect to ophthalmic patients to provide them the utmost care, for IPD as well as OPD patients. The students of this course would thus be better alternatives to existing under-trained optometrists in the market with the capability of delivering quality care.
Following Skills related to Optometry would also be developed:
Optometric Equipment & Instrument Handling
Performing Various Vision Tests
Report analysing with Effective Communication Skills
Maintaining Records of Ophthalmic Investigations etc.
Besides this, the specialized skilled training is offered to the students which make them an asset not only to
Ophthalmologist but also to the patients.
