It will depend on how closely related the courses are, and whether they share modules. If you are staying at the same university, they will probably be able to compare the courses more easily; if you want to transfer universities as well, you may have more difficulty.

What you may be offered is to restart Optometry in Year 1.

You’d be better off doing a foundation year in Optometry, as Orthoptics is quite a different course. Good luck!
