This line from the great British song writer is so descriptive of Optometry’s newest institution. A mountain of stone was taken down inch by inch. As long as it has taken education to be reborn in

A group of very talented professionals opened computers on a warm, sunny mountain morning and began the longest educational journey of their young lives. Well beyond the stage of their student lives they have earned a position as adult learners in the premier health care profession. This will be repeated 21 additional times over the next weeks as our Optometry College Colleagues across the country come on line for a new semester.


About Eye on Optometry

Welcome to Eye on Optometry, a new blog from the Association of Schools and Colleges of Optometry (ASCO)! The main goal of the blog is to provide timely and useful information to anyone who is interested in applying to optometry school. It’s all part of one of ASCO’s many strategic objectives, which is to help the schools and colleges of optometry develop a large, diverse and highly qualified national applicant pool while getting the word out about the attractiveness of a career in the profession.  We will also blog about other optometry-related topics from time to time.
