Innovation is one of SUNY College of Optometry’s core values. We work hard to foster an environment that encourages and supports innovative thinking.
The Student Innovator Award is a partnership between EssilorLuxottica and Jobson’s Rick Bay Foundation for Excellence in Eyecare Education that rewards ingenuity, creativity, and innovation around ideas and concepts to improve eye care. Take your interest to design change in everything from clinical eye care, research concepts, and practice management to optometric education, health care policy, and technology – or any combination of these areas and more. Innovations are not limited in scope but should relate to eye care or vision.
