The University of Waterloo, School of Optometry and Vision Science, has won the 2012 "Optometrist Diamond" category of the “Readers’ Select Awards", sponsored by the Waterloo Record. This is the second time in three years that the School has won this award!
Thank you to the community members who have nominated us, and congratulations to all those who provide and support patient care!
In 2012, 25 North American optometry programs participated in the World Sight Day Student Challenge, which benefits Optometry Giving Sight. Waterloo competed for the first time this year by hosting its ‘Dining in the Dark’ event in the fall. Thanks to the efforts of our student leaders and all those who participated, Waterloo came in first, with our sister school, Montreal, coming in second.
Congratulations to the student leaders who organized this event.
