    Yeah, I don't mean specific to optometry. Do you know any general science/healthcare foundation years which could lead to an optometry degree? Thank you

    I know Manchester, Aston and Bradford offer science foundation years which lead to optometry but I just wanted to make sure it was right.

    As long as they mention directly that profession onto optometry is an option you should be fine.
