Free eye exams to the uninsured. Vision screenings for entire elementary schools. Glasses for people who desperately need but can’t afford them.
These are just a few ways our students give their service and expertise to the community. In return, they receive the gift of working in diverse clinical settings, where financial, geographic, or physical barriers prevent access to basic eye care.
This is why the IU School of Optometry graduates doctors who have a greater awareness of the issues that influence access to health care, and who continue to engage in the communities where they live and work.
