Contemplating quitting my pre reg optometrist year. It’s something I’m not enjoying, don’t think I’ve ever been so unhappy. Just wondered if anyone was in the same position if so what did you end up doing

How’s it going for you now? My supervisor is being really helpful by saying he’ll sit in on my tests and support me till I tell him he doesn’t need to but it hasn’t helped. I still don’t like it

Ahh that’s annoying have you asked your supervisor to let you test more in the week ? You must be doing something right though if you’ve gotten to stage 2 now ☺️

Tips to surviving stage 1 ? How do you manage to see all that you need by then ? Even the ones I have seen I feel like are not up to the standard. When I go through notes by people who help understand stage 1 , I feel like I’m far off from how perfect they say our cases have to be. It’s getting too much to handle! Been breaking down every week worrying about the visit, and I’m only in stage 1 about to sit visit 2

honestly you just have to be perfect with your records and be able to explain and back up with evidence why you did or didn't do certain tests. Management has to be on point and any follow ups need to be recorded too. The do really scrutinise your rescord. And with pre-reg honestly i am struggling too, idk how people get through this?

stage 1 was useless - felt like i learnt nothing - my assessor was probably lenient lmfao. i resat stage 2 twice and man it really developed my thought process, thinking and mindset, so dont worry if youre struggling at stage 1, it'll probably make u better for stage 2
