Welcome! The benefits of a career in Optometry speak for themselves. You will have the opportunity to help people, change lives and make a difference. 

With a limited number of Optometry schools in the country—choosing where to start your optometric journey is an important first step. What really makes us proud… what truly makes us different … is our focus. Our focus on you!  From the moment you connect with us you will feel a sense of support, a sense of belonging and a sense of family. 

We collaborate, encourage, support and celebrate together. Small class sizes mean more time with faculty in the classroom, the labs, and in the clinical setting. Strong relationships mean life-long connections.  That’s the UMSL Optometry difference. We cannot wait to meet you and have you become a part of our family!
