IMPACT HBCU INITIATIVE

We're redefining the color of the eye care industry 1% at a time by creating a pipeline for black students into optometry. Black Eyecare Perspective and Optometrists of the black community are being intentional in our impact and on Tuesday, October 6. 2020 we will create a pipeline for students at every HBCU to not only the field of optometry, but the eyecare industry.
