In the summer between the second and third years, students begin to examine patients in the University's Eye Care Institute. They care for adult, pediatric, and geriatric patients with all types of ocular and visual needs in the primary eye care clinic. In addition to seeing patients, third year students continue to study ocular disease, contact lenses, and clinical medicine.
