Academic Events and Activities
The institute believes in continuous learning & up gradation. Optometry as a science & profession has undergone tremendous change in the field of delivering quality optometry education & also in contact lens, low vision & vision therapy. To update the students, faculties & eye care professionals, the institute conducts various Continuing Education Programmes from time to time in collaboration with IACLE, IVI, ASCO, etc. The institute has conducted various workshops on Contact Lens (IACLE), (Johnson & Johnson Vision Care), Teaching Methodologies (IVI), Faculty Development programmes (ASCO) etc. Every year, the students appear for the STE (Student Trial Exam) conducted by IACLE and pass out with flying colours. This year we introduced another new programme called ACS (Annual Clinical Symposium) which got huge success & appreciation that we are planning to do it every year from now on. We have been awarded with 5 Credit points by Optometry Council of India for ACS 15 & we received the prestigious certificate of Achievement from IACLE. We also conduct on line lectures/webex lectures for the students in association with IVI & IACLE.
