suny college of optometry

giving The Optometric Center of New York (OCNY) is the allied and endowing foundation of the State University of New York College of Optometry. The OCNY was founded in 1956 by a small group of dedicated optometrists and benefactors as a nonprofit health and professional education resource for the community. This pioneering effort supported and directed the establishment of a vision care clinic, which, in 1971, became the patient care centerpiece for the new SUNY College of Optometry. Since its inception, the OCNY has had an ongoing commitment to the New York community and to the community at large. Whether supporting vision care for the working poor and indigent patients at the University Eye Center, awarding scholarships to optometry students who are academically outstanding and financially deserving or supporting research into the complex human visual system, the OCNY is dedicated to the future of healthcare and to the advancement of science.
