Optometry personal statement + work experience

Hi, I am wanting to apply to optometry.
I have an epq relevant to optometry, however I haven't got work experience for it which I am a little worried about.
But I am going to do work experience for orthoptics at the NHS which isn't the same as optom. But would it be weird to include this in my personal statement as they're entirely different professions?
I was thinking of linking it by using transferrable skills etc..
Yep, getting any wex rn is super difficult (lots of medics I kno still haven't got any), so good job! It 100% is still relevant, in a ps remember to reflect on what you saw and those transferable skills!
