Web Accessibility

SUNY College of Optometry is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability. We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website and in doing so adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines, including New York State Office of Information Technology Services Policy P08-005: Accessibility of Information Communication Technology.

This website endeavours to conform to level Double-A of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user friendly for all people.

This site has been built using code compliant with W3C standards for HTML and CSS. The site displays correctly in current browsers and using standards compliant HTML/CSS code means any future browsers will also display it correctly.

We are continually seeking out solutions that will bring all areas of the site up to the same level of overall web accessibility.  In the meantime should you experience any difficulty in accessing any portion of this website and would like to obtain the information in an alternative format, please contact:
