The University of Houston College of Optometry has become the premier optometric institution through collaborative efforts with alumni, industry partners, and the University. Combining the educational opportunities with those currently offered within the University Eye Institute, UHCO is able to offer students a complete, cutting-edge education. The Health and Biomedical Sciences Building is a state-of-the-art facility which features the Molly and Doug Barnes Vision Institute. The Institute includes the TSO Alumni Education Center, the UHCO Surgery Center and the Brien Holden Vision Institute Classrooms and Learning Center, as well as enhanced clinical and patient-based research space.
Having the leading educational facility for patients and students enhances our mission of education, research and service. Our students receive the highest caliber of instruction possible by world-renowned scientific researchers and clinical faculty whose passion is the success of our students. Throughout their education, our students have opportunities to immerse themselves in their studies as well as professional organizations to help network and prepare for becoming a doctor of optometry.
