Members don't see this ad.
for those of you in opt school, are your classes based more upon chemistry, bio, or physics? it seems to me that vision is more physics based (which i enjoy), and i absolutely hate chemistry, so i'm curious about what to expect.

now for my new favorite graemlin:

Our classes are based on all three, with more emphasis on physics. The only "chem" course we must take is biochem, but biochem relates directly to all our physio, pharm, immunology, etc classes. :D And we take extensive ocular biology courses and anatomy and physio courses that all relate to bio. :D

This semester it's mostly anatomy and physio. We don't take biochem at UHCO (it's a prereq). There is some physics with optics, but it's mostly trig and algebra. (nothing overly complicated.. just applying it is tricky)
I think the only time you'll see organic is with pharm. (but don't quote me on that)
