Pre-Optometry Associations acquaint its members with the aspects of the field and assist those interested with the necessary tools in realizing their career goals. They intend to foster a community and provide resources for pre-optometry students and anyone interested in related professions, such as vision science, and the like.
We act as the linking mediator between doctors and students. Through our network of Pre-Optometry Clubs who also may already be participating in the APOA (American Pre-Optometric Association) Bright Horizon Program, we work to establish student placements to volunteer or job shadow at different offices of ophthalmology, optometry, labs, research, and the like. This is done by creating a unique network of OD’s who are willing to interact with pre-optometry students and offer them an irreplaceable hands-on experience with the profession, which is further required to access optometry school.
