Focusing on the importance of following uniform optometry curriculum in institutions across the country, the second session in the IVI Online Series for Institutional Development was conducted on 29 January 2015.           

Facilitated by Dr Luigi Bilotto, Director, Global Human Resource Development, Brien Holden Vision Institute, optometry school heads from eleven schools attended the session.

The major take away from the session was the need for uniform optometry curriculum in colleges across the country. The participants also learnt about ASCO’s Common Minimum Optometry Curriculum (CMOC) in relation to global standards.       

“The session was excellent. It was very informative for further growth & development of an optometry institution.”- Moumita Sarkar, Principal, Netra Mandir Optometry Institute, Mumbai

“The session by Mr Luigi was very good and informative. Gave a detailed view of the optometry curriculum globally and stressed on standardization of optometry curriculum. Look forward to more of such sessions.”- Anitha Arvind, Vice-Principle, RJN School of Optometry, Gwalior
