Vision Sciences








Guided by the mission of IBADAT INERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY, to produce professionals outfitted with highest standards in creativity, transfer and application of knowledge dissemination to address issues of our time “our department’s vision is to be recognized for high-quality educational programs and research through focused activities and excellence of its faculty, staff, graduates and facilities. We will achieve this vision through fostering the education of students and by contributing to the base of optometry and orthoptics research.

Optometry is one of the diverse technological field in the world which provide excellence in different domains like contact lens, low vision, refraction and strabismus. Currently the field is very well recognized nationally and internationally. We are imparting knowledge and clinical sskill to make our graduates excellent health care professionals, the department not only imparts theoretical knowledge but also encourage students to undergo internships and professional trainings. As a result, our students acquire critical thinking capabilities as well as practical skills. Our graduates can work in Government and private sectors and explore the research areas related to vision sciences.

Please feel to free to contact us or visit our website where you will find detailed information about our graduate and undergraduate programs, our faculty members, research groups, and the broad range of activities underway in the Department.
