Muslims in Optometry vs medicine ?


I’m a Muslim woman in year 12 and I need to start applying for universities, Any advice/thoughts about applying to optometry?

Also I’m indecisive between optometry and medicine ? Any advice.

Thank you so much.
Hi, I have just finished first year studying optometry. Alhamdulillah it’s been nice, interesting and nothing too difficult (yet 😂). Obviously I haven’t done medicine but I can assume optometry is less overbearing and also the entry requirements are easier to achieve.

Do u have any particular questions about optometry?
I’m so confused why does religion matter here?
