ASCO Launches Eye Opener Sessions

Eye Opener Sessions.
A program for pre-optometry students to shadow ODs.

The Association of Schools and Colleges of Optometry (ASCO) has introduced Eye Opener Sessions, a program designed to connect prospective optometry students with educators and practicing Doctors of Optometry (ODs) for shadowing and mentorship.

This initiative complements ASCO’s public awareness campaign, Optometry Gives Me Life, and aims to provide prospective students with in-person or virtual shadowing experiences to understand the daily life of an optometrist. Matching between students and ODs is based on location, interests, and goals. Berkeley clinicians who are willing to connect with prospective students are encouraged to sign up!
