The mission of this residency program is to prepare optometrists in providing ocular disease and full-scope primary care optometry. Residents will be taught the clinical education necessary to become practitioners who are able to deliver both ocular disease and primary care optometry, including therapeutic management of ocular disease, contact lenses for medically necessary needs, and low vision/rehabilitative eye care, in a multidisciplinary environment. This program will provide academic and clinical experiences that will enable residents to expand their knowledge base, strengthen their patient care skills, and participate in clinical and academic education. Individuals who complete the program are expected to be able to deliver a high level of clinical care and to serve as optometric educators.
