Oxyopia Talks

Oxyopia, the Greek word meaning "acute vision,"  is the title of the weekly vision science seminars presented at the Indiana University School of Optometry in conjunction with graduate course V765. The seminars serve a twofold purpose in that they:

     1. stimulate intellectual activity among the faculty, and

     2. provide a learning environment for graduate students.

Oxyopia presenters are IU School of Optometry faculty members and graduate students as well as visiting lecturers from other departments, universities, research facilities, private practices, industry, etc.
