LogoHere’s to the next generation of Optometrists

Welcome to Eye Opener Sessions, the program designed to connect students who are curious about optometry with practicing eye doctors (a.k.a. optometrists or ODs). It’s a student-engagement program—only better. Because, just by answering a few questions about your goals and hobbies, we’ll match ODs with like-minded students. You must be 18 or older to participate.

ASCO facilitates introducing undergraduate students to professionals in the field of optometry but the professionals who participate in this program are not ASCO personnel and ASCO does not control and is not responsible for the communications or relationship between the professionals and the students.

How it works

It's a mentor matchmaking program to connect you with eye doctors who can help you see what a career in optometry is like.
