So as the title says, I'm a junior in college and I'm graduating with a degree in psychology in 2 semesters. I've struggled with finding *the* right major for me so I settled on psychology since I'm interested in it and you can do a lot with it. In all the psych courses I've taken we have briefly covered the eyes and how they work and I think it's all really interesting. The course I'm taking right now is focused more on biological processes so we had a section that went more in depth on the subject.
So I guess I'm here to ask what is a good course of action I should take if I'm interested in becoming an optometrist. I've been googling to get an idea and I think I have some of the classes taken care of, which are stats, psych courses(required in my state I believe — Michigan), and calculus. I was considering trying to take the rest of the prereqs during my next few semesters, but I don't know if I'll be able to alongside my classes I need for my psych degree. Is it at all possible to get the prereqs done at a community college? Or would I need to get them done at a 4-year university? Also, would I need an actual degree or can I just take the prereqs I need and move on? I don't mind continuing with school, I just won't be able to be a fulltime student like I am now. Also I don't really have a good source of income so I would need to get a job and work for a while before I could even afford to go back to school. Any input is appreciated.
