Attention! Notice for Nepalese Students!

There are many records of brilliant students studying in the least standard colleges. Due to the different timing of result distribution of optometry in Nepal and India, many Nepalese students are forced to join any college where seats are available. As many best optometry college in India don’t accept any application as soon as their deadline is over especially at the end of July no Nepalese students during the time get their final results.

So not to be deprived of the best education for better future we think it’s better to prepare yourself for next admission season.
