Hello! I'm an Optometry Graduate from the prestigious (or the best school) for optometry in my country. Next month, I will settle down in US with family and also I have some relatives in medical field working and have been settling in US. The optometry course in our country offers a six year degree ( 2 years pre-optometry and 4 years of Optometry Proper). My school recently a certified international affiliate member of the ASCO. I want to know if I have to study optometry in US since I am considered as an international applicant OR it will be a straight way to take State board exam for optometry?? This decision makes me confuse all the time. Hoping for some reply and information, it would be a great help. Thank you !:)

I am from Centro Escolar University in the Philippines. I finished my 6 year degree program few years ago and I’m planning to be licensed in the united states. I just want to know if there are other ways (like sponsorship from a certain state) that I can do instead of enrolling to the advanced standing program in the USA.

I would love more info on this too; apparently, California no longer offers state sponsorship. Are there any other states who sponsor foreign grads to write the NBEO?

Hi. Did you get any information or answer regarding your question? We are on the same boat, I think it's best if we communicate regarding this matter. I'm also contacting different state boards as of the moment. :)
