Hey what's up everyone. No i'm not dumb, I know what an optometrist is. But I was hoping that question would get a quicker response on here. I am a freshman at The University of Akron in Ohio. I am trying to figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life, but not having much luck. Im pretty sure it is in the health field, but I don't know if I want to be an orthopedic surgeon or an optometrist/opthamologist. Basically, I have two questions; what should I major in for my undergrad if I want to be an optometrist, and what is the difference between an optometrist and an opthamologist???? Thanks in advance for any help.
