I was just wondering how much chem, Ochem, calc you actually have to deal with in Opt School?

I have been away from science for a while and have started the OAT cram prep for later this year. I have realized how much I hate both chem and Ochem
and hope there is some light at the end of this self-induced torture.

Figured students and Grads would best be able to answer this.

I'd say if you know at least a little bit of chemistry, you can stumble through biochem in optometry school. Worked for me. As far as calc goes, if you can figure how to take a number an find the inverse, you'll be a-ok.
