New England Eye Comprehensive Vision Centers

New England Eye Commonwealth and New England Eye Roslindale are our two flagship comprehensive vision centers, owned and operated by the College. At New England Eye Commonwealth and Roslindale, our doctors and students seek to improve the visual health of diverse populations through excellence in collaborative and community patient care. Most of our students do at least one clinical placement at our flagship locations during their time at the College. Visit the New England Eye website.

During my special populations rotation, I had an incredible experience working on the mobile clinic while providing ocular health examinations to children throughout the surrounding areas of Boston. This clinic site helped me to communicate more directly with children and to become a better clinician. It also allowed me to help populations that are in need of primary ocular care.
