  1. Pre-Optometry
I think that schools will appreciate the experience, but at a lot of my interviews I was often asked about my experiences in different scopes of optometry. So I’d say if you get the job as an ophthalmic tech I would still shadow Optometry practices, and get my letter of rec from an OD.
