Student Life

Optometry students have started clubs around everything from biking and running. They do it for fun, and for the common good: riding bikes to support people in old age homes, doing flash mobs to support local charities, and taking trips to provide eye care in places where people cannot afford an eye test. They have also started a Charity club to help people in need named –SAN (Service Authorised Nest).

We have a college union election here and the winning group organises and plans the activities for the year. They conduct programs related to Optometry like- Sight day programs, Optometry week celebrations, Glaucoma awareness programs etc. along with vision screening camps at various parts of the city- from schools to Govt. offices and NGOs. Apart from these we have non-academic programs like food fest, arts fest, mehendi competitions, short film competitions, photography and videography contests, sports day, college day celebrations, field trips, industrial visits and much more.
