Why Research?

"Optometric research is meaningful for the individual doctor, the individual patient, the researcher (obviously), and ultimately for the optometric profession in general. I strongly believe that research that changes how optometrists take care of people is the underpinning of a true profession. Ohio State Optometry has that kind of research portfolio."

Dr. Karla Zadnik, Dean



"The OSU College of Optometry is at the forefront of optometric research that can be immediately used in clinical practice. Research findings ranging from retinal imaging to binocular vision result in improved outcomes for our patients suffering from a variety of ocular maladies."

Dr. Jeffrey J. Walline, Associate Dean for Research
