About NCOS

Most doctors of optometry complete eight years of college: four years of premedical undergraduate education, earning a Bachelor of Science degree and four years of graduate education, earning a Doctorate in Optometry. In addition, many optometrists complete a one-year residency or fellowship program following graduation. Annual continuing education is mandatory for all optometrists to renew their license to practice.

Think of Optometrists for:

  • Annual eye health and vision care examinations for all members of the family.
  • Problem-solving concerning eyewear and visual comfort.
  • Contact lens fitting and follow-up care, including bifocal lenses and lenses to correct astigmatism.
  • Relief of symptoms associated with computer use.
  • Vision therapy and vision training; a non-surgical option for many eye muscle disorders and focusing problems.
  • Treatment of visually impaired patients with optical devices that enhance the remaining vision.
  • Diagnosis, treatment and management of eye disease and related systemic conditions.
  • Continued care of chronic eye and related systemic diseases.
  • Emergency treatment of eye infections and inflammations, including bacterial, viral and allergic conditions and foreign body removals from the eye.
