What classes would be best to take in order to become an optometrist? What schools should I look into after high school graduation?

I am a freshman in high school and my dream job is to be an optometrist after witnessing my uncle lose his vision in the span of 3 years. I want to start planning my academic route but would like recommendations for classes. Also what schools give good degrees in biology and are more likely to get you accepted into an optometry school?
