The study of Optometry is intended for students who wish to work in the field of eye optics, in the process of production, maintenance, servicing of optical instruments and aids as well as the activities related to eye optics and refraction.

Optometry encompasses various activities including:

*       eye refraction and definition of required spectacles, contact lenses, and other items for vision improvement as well as directing clients who need medical examination and treatment to ophthalmologists;

*       consultation on proper use of spectacles and contact lenses, proper lighting for work and reading and other visual aids;

*       inserting required lenses into frames and assembling frames or inserting contact lenses in the users’ eyes.


A student who has completed the study programme of Optometry (optometrist) will be an expert who will have the knowledge necessary for the care of vision, primarily from the aspect of an expert for refraction determination of all the proper correction aids for vision improvement.

Also, the graduate student will be qualified for independent management of optometry and optician’s shop operations. The student will know how to organize business management, marketing, finances and economics, legal regulations, and how to organize and perform safety at work measurements and environmental protection related to the activities in compliance with the valid EU and Croatian standards and laws.
