This past Giving Tuesday was one for the history books. The School of Optometry and Vision Science was the "little department that could" as alumni and friends came together to support the Waterloo Eye Institute (WEI), taking the title of the Most Donors and Most Dollars challenges!

"I am truly humbled by the outpouring of support and grateful to all the hard work that went into making Giving Tuesday a smashing success," says Dr. Stanley Woo, Director, School of Optometry and Vision Science.
