Why should you consider applying to the Kentucky College of Optometry?

  • In 2011, the governor of Kentucky signed Senate Bill 110 (Better Access to Quality Healthcare Act) into law, making Kentucky only one of three states in the nation to allow optometrists to perform in-office laser eye procedures, inject medications into eyes and remove “lumps and bumps” around the eyes.  All of these procedures will be part of the curriculum and clinical practice at the Kentucky College of Optometry
  • A new 103,000-square-foot building will be a state-of-the-art learning and teaching space for the Kentucky College of Optometry.
  • As a student, you will have access to the newest and most advanced equipment as part of your learning.
  • Examine a patient population with a diversity of health conditions that will increase your clinical experience.
  • You will be part of providing better access to quality eye care for rural Kentucky residents.
  • Participate in unique clinical experiences in our system of satellite clinics, strategically placed in rural areas in need, and in the hospital clinic, where you will work with other medical professionals collaboratively.
