Optometry & Vision Science (DOVS-UCC)

The University of Cape Coast Department of Optometry and Vision Science (DOVS) welcomes you to a trailblazing program within a leading university. We are committed to training optometrists with quantitative clinical skillset and outstanding academic accomplishments. The Department is dedicated to championing the cause of eye and vision care through innovative and high-impact research. Our notable faculty have gained illustrious reputation for scholarly research works that explored a varied range of questions relating to how the eye makes sense of light, and why vision fails. We seek to bridge the gap in eye health status and eye health services through our robust community-centered outreach programs.

Our students come from diverse cultural backgrounds to create a scientific community fostered through sharing of unique cultural/intellectual opportunities, practical encounters and expansive working knowledge in eye and vision care. The Department is a center of excellence where great minds meet to challenge, mentor and inspire you to make an impact. We hope you will enjoy joining us, I and my staff assure you that you have our support in reaching your goals and you will be greatly inspired to make positive changes in the world.

We invite you to explore and find out more about how we can contribute to make you an inspiring leader.

Prof. Alex Azuka Ilechie
