The mission of the University of the Incarnate Word Rosenberg School of Optometry is to educate and prepare future leaders in optometry through excellence in education, patient care, and vision research.

The Rosenberg School of Optometry prides itself in the fact that it plays host for one of the most diverse groups of optometry students in the world. Our students come from many different backgrounds, providing a firm foundation to build lasting personal and professional relationships.
The Rosenberg School of Optometry offers outstanding professional preparation. Our strong curriculum covers all aspects of Optometry. The outstanding faculty is renowned for their expertise in the many varied areas of optometric patient care. Students are challenged to master optics, vision science, the diagnosis and management of ocular disease, and the care of patients who present with complex medical conditions while always remembering that you are caring for the whole person.
Equally important is the great emphasis the Rosenberg School of Optometry places on the personal growth of the optometric student as they progress from applicant to alumnus. The optometric intern is continually afforded the opportunity to pursue a path of personal growth and development. Not only do our students graduate with professional competencies but also learn to embrace the tenets of human dignity and social justice as a complete health care provider.
