Community Partnerships & Outreach

The New England College of Optometry Clinical Network is committed to providing access to high-quality, convenient, and affordable eye care throughout the community. We have developed strong community partnerships to provide services to individuals with disabilities, specific low vision and geriatric services, and care to those who are homeless.

With a rich history of community service, students from New England College of Optometry work alongside optometrists in our clinical network to provide eye care through the system of community collaborators. Together, they provide advanced eye and vision services, along with other coordinated heath services, designed to care for special populations including children, older adults, those with low vision, the homeless, and individuals with disabilities.  Their goal is to provide services for the whole community, including underserved populations.
