General Information

After completing the Doctor of Optometry Program graduates may wish to further their clinical expertise by completing a residency in a specialty area. Residencies allow graduates to focus and expand their knowledge in a specific area of Optometry. Residency programs offer the opportunity to treat many challenging cases with guidance from top clinicians who are experts in the field.

“My decision to do the cornea and contact lenses residency at IU is the best decision I made, coming out of optometry school. Everything from the faculty, facilities, patient experiences and other opportunities are top notch and the education I have gained in the twelve short months here is invaluable!” states Kevin Cassar, O.D.

Residencies provide the graduate with a level of expertise that expands their career opportunities. These opportunities may include interdisciplinary practices, clinical and hospital settings, as well as teaching opportunities in schools and colleges of optometry.

The Indiana University School of Optometry offers residencies in the areas of Contact Lenses and Cornea, Ocular Disease, Binocular Vision/Pediatrics, and Low Vision. The School also offers affiliated residencies in Primary Care and Ocular Disease located in Illinois, Kentucky and West Virginia.

Indiana University directs all residencies through the office of Steven A. Hitzeman, O.D., F.A.A.O., Director of Residencies, School of Optometry, Indiana University, 800 E. Atwater Avenue, Bloomington, IN 47405-3680; (812) 855-4979. For information or applications, please contact the individual program coordinator or the office of the director of residencies.
