  • “ M.Optom Batch 2013 I have been practicing in Dubai since the last 5 years. My roles have included being a clinician as well as an educational speaker. As a practicing optometrist, I always recollect the training I received at Nagar School of Optometry. 6 years at this institution were full of thorough learning, continuous work at the hospital and a lot of fun-filled time with friends. We were encouraged to participate in national and international optometry conferences from as early as our first year. That’s where I discovered the vast expanse of subspecialties within the field of optometry; where proud optometrists would share their knowledge. I had the opportunity of directly evaluating thousands of patients and becoming proficient in all areas of optometric patient care. Our faculties facilitated lectures by many guest speakers renowned in the optometry fraternity of India. Having been practicing outside India, I have understood that background verifications are ought to happen by any foreign optometry board I choose to register for. NSO has been and will be there to provide support for it. I know that I am always welcome at NSO, my alma mater. "

  • “ Hi, my name is Chiranjib Majumder and I have completed my post graduation from Nagar School of Optometry ( NSO) in the year 2011. Currently, I am working as a lecturer in UCSI University, Malaysia. I always feel like NSO has changed my perspective towards career selection. After completion of my graduation, I was thinking to become a clinician. But after completion of post graduation from NSO, I have developed a huge interest towards academics. NSO taught me to become an independent learner which is really important for an academician to continue his or her growth as a professional. The learning environment of NSO provided me the opportunity to explore various aspects of optometry. I am really thankful to all my lecturers, classmates, friends, juniors and seniors for their continuous support and affection. NSO is always a life changing experience for me. "
