Mission Trips and Community Outreach

One of the extraordinary aspects of the UIW Rosenberg School of Optometry is the program-wide commitment to serving populations in need.  This dedication is displayed by the students, faculty, and staff that live the mission of the program and the university.  Please take a minute to meet some of the people we have helped with the gift of sight and see who we will serve in the future.
