Teaching: educating our future professionals


Future optometrists are trained at Flinders Vision through Flinders University’s Bachelor of Medical Science (Vision Science) / Master of Optometry.

Flinders Vision’s practicing optometrists undertake teaching into this program and drive this important link between education and practice.

Exposure to extensive examination and diagnostic equipment, software and real-life circumstances at Flinders Vision provides vital pre-career training for optometrists.

During the fourth and fifth years of study, optometry students also complete clinical placements at Flinders Vision under the supervision of our principal optometrist. Your eye examination at our clinic may be undertaken by, or involve, these students.

Our students are also frequently involved in research projects which call for volunteers to undertake an eye examination. The information gathered during these exercises provides the students with real data to base their research on.
