Essilor Canada is partnering up with the University of Waterloo's School of Optometry to enhance optometric education and advance eye health in Canada. Over the course of five years, Essilor will invest $250,000 toward the $8 million transformation that the School of Optometry is working on to create a state-of-the-art clinic for patients and for optometrists in training. Essilor is also working with Scotiabank, Gowlings and KPMG to help Waterloo Optometry to present a weekend education program, First Practice Management, designed to help students and new practitioners in optometry understand their career options.
