Choosing a Pre-Opt Major

According to Association of Schools and Colleges of Optometry (ASCO):

"Most students major in the natural sciences in college (biology, chemistry, etc.) because the prerequisites for optometry school are science intensive. However, prospective students can major in any degree discipline as long as they complete all of the prerequisite courses for optometry."

(Schools and Colleges of Optometry: Admission Requirements 2009-2010)

University of Kentucky students with a broad range of majors have been successful in the optometry school admissions process.
