Optometrists examine patients in order to diagnose eye and vision problems and test patients' depth and color perception, as well as their ability to coordinate and focus their eyes. Optometrists' sample resumes highlight such responsibilities as scheduling eye surgeries for patients, inputting information into the medical records-keeping system, and ensuring that medical supplies are well stocked. Applicants should be able to show a four-year degree on their resumes in a related field, such as biology, chemistry, or physiology.
