    Hello All!

    I am new to the forum and would like to know what are the requirements in order to view the Optometric Forums? I understand that Pre-Optometry students do not have access to it. However, do future optometry students or current optometry students have access to it at all?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Point of information...

    There is full access to the private optometry forums when you begin your first year of optometry college. We have to have verification of your optometry college and graduation date, once you begin classes.

    Meantime the access to the Pre Optometry Forum allows you to ask questions. There will be responses by seasoned ODs.

    Good luck on your career decision.

    Hello. I am currently an Optometry student now. Are there any specific procedures that I have to take in order to gain access to the private forums? Thanks in advance!
