Help Us Invest in the Future of Vision Care and Science

The Vision and the Promise: Major Gifts Campaign

Millions of people in New York and around the world have been touched by the work done at the State University of New York College of Optometry. Since its founding in 1971 when a group of dedicated optometrists came together with the mission to improve public health, the College has continued to make vital contributions in all areas of vision science, optometric education and patient care.

Under the leadership of its president, Dr. David A. Heath, the College has embarked on a new strategic plan, A Shared Vision, to accomplish its enduring mission in new, creative ways that will both address the key challenges we face and shape the future of vision care and scientific advancement.

With the shared commitment of our supporters and advocates, we will be able to reach our $10 million target by 2014 and respond to new opportunities to improve vision care and meet the growing healthcare needs of local, national and global communities.
