There are visual requirements for the DMD and students could fail and be excluded if they do not have these visual requirements.

Applicants are recommended to have an eye examination to determine if they have any vision defects which will interfere with their ability to practice as a dentist.

Vision defects that can be corrected, such as the wearing of glasses, should be done so prior to enrolment.  There are a significant number of dentists who are colour blind.  Colour blindness may affect the ability to become a dentist and so it is strongly advised that applicants seek advice from an opthamologist.
