Ophthalmic Science changed its name to Vision Care Technology effective in the fall of 2017. After in-depth discussions with our many stakeholders, including faculty, staff, current students, our amazing advisory board, the general public and most critically prospective students, we believe changing the program name is appropriate.
Research of other accredited optical programs has revealed a trend away from that term toward more easily understood titles using the words “vision” and “care.” We believe that Vision Care Technology will engage, rather than confuse, and that the valuable time our faculty and admission officers currently spend correcting misunderstandings can more effectively be used to explain career benefits to prospective students.
