The Indiana University School of Optometry is committed to providing an exceptional and comprehensive educational experience to our students. The academic expectations are rigorous, and IUSO is here to serve future Optometrists from before they apply to IUSO until long after they graduate and begin practice in the professional world.

Here you will find details about the degree programs that are offered.  You can also investigate available post-graduate residencies and the resources available at the Optometry library.
