College Foundation Receives Grant


The Optometric Center of New York recently received a $20,000 grant from the Foundation for Sight and Sound to provide essential low vision devices for low vision patients who cannot afford them.

According to Ann Warwick, Vice President for Institutional Advancement, the Long Island- based foundation is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for those affected by visual and/ or auditory conditions.

The College's Low Vision Service provides comprehensive vision exams and support to patients whose vision loss cannot be corrected by eyeglasses, medication or surgery.
