What is HSS NWT Optometrist Licence?
Optometrists are healthcare professionals who provide primary vision care ranging from sight testing and correction to the diagnosis, treatment, and management of vision changes. An optometrist is not a medical doctor. Applicant should have completed two years or more of education in optometry in regular mode (for Diploma) and three years (for Degree) plus one year of internship (CMOC curriculum to be followed for degree courses). Exceptions, such as AIIMS and SNDT College, would be considered if they have done the course after 10+2.
