Peri-Operative Rotation

With a focus on the future, the UIW Rosenberg School of Optometry is proud to include peri-operative experiences as part of the 4th academic year rotation. Students will provide pre- and post-op surgical care for glaucoma, cataract, and LASIK patients in addition to observing the surgical procedures.

These experiences are offered through a partnership with Parkhurst NuVision Laser Surgery Center and the outpatient surgery center that is housed within the Bowden Eye Care and Health Center.

Additionally, UIWRSO offers a rotation experience through clinical sites in the state of Louisiana. Louisiana is one of very few states where performing minor surgical procedures is included in the scope of practice for optometrists. Students participating in these rotations will gain hands-on experiences in various surgical procedures.

In the interest of providing students with the very best educational resources and the highest level of expertise, all of the UIWRSO faculty have been laser and minor surgery trained.
