5oth Anniversary



Via Zoom

Join the SUNY College of Optometry community for an online celebration on April 14th starting at 7 p.m. as we commemorate 50 years of vision study, research, outreach, and care of people of all walks of life.

Located in the heart of Manhattan, SUNY College of Optometry was established on April 14, 1971, in response to the call from a dedicated group of optometrists and benefactors to address the gap in optometric education and professional development in New York. A half-century later, SUNY Optometry remains the only school of optometry in the state, is home to one of the largest optometric outpatient facilities in the nation, and is recognized as one of the leading optometric education and vision research centers across the globe. SUNY Optometry pride is proudly represented by over 3,400 graduates and counting in the US and worldwide.
