Optometry at ֱ

ֱ’s Kentucky College of Optometry (KYCO) is the only program in Kentucky to offer the doctor of optometry (O.D.) degree.

Kentucky is one of three states in the nation to allow optometrists to perform in-office laser eye procedures, inject medications into eyes and remove “lumps and bumps” around the eyes. Uniquely, all of these procedures are part of the curriculum and clinical practice at KYCO.

Outstanding faculty and a wide range of clinical experiences mean that you will be part of an excellent healthcare team during your time in the program.
