The Future of Eye Care Begins Here

At the Indiana University School of Optometry you will benefit from being part of our efforts to deliver the full spectrum of what optometry is today and what it will be tomorrow: excellent clinical training, advanced specialty care, and cutting-edge vision science research.

We take what we have learned about eye health—from the research laboratory to the student classroom to the patient clinic—then share it with the world.

Learn more about how the School of Optometry is putting new knowledge into practice every day.
