Eye on Optometry is the ASCO blog (https://optometriceducation.org/eye-on-optometry/). It has many posts from optometry students, Doctors of Optometry and sometimes our Corporate Contributors. Topics have ranged from why a student entered the field, why they are proud to be a part of it, study habits, the different modalities of optometry, and more. If you are a current student of optometry or considering becoming one, or a practicing OD, please subscribe to the blog. Just click on the green button that says “Subscribe to Email Updates” at the top right of the page and type your email in the box when prompted.

We are always looking for guest authors to write a blog or submit a video. We only accept guest posts from those inside the optometric profession. If you are interested in submitting a guest blog or video, please email ASCO’s Director of Communications, Kimberly O’Sullivan at kosullivan@opted.org.

The ASCO electronic Journal is Optometric Education (https://journal.opted.org/) and is published three times a year – in the Fall, Winter and Spring. It contains professional peer-reviewed articles, such as studies and case reports, about issues and important topics in the field of optometry and optometric education as well as an editorial from the Journal’s editor. This Journal is great to read if you want to gain more academic knowledge about optometry. In order to receive the Journal, type your email in the box labeled “subscribe via email” and click “subscribe”.

ASCO also has a YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/c/AssociationofSchoolsandCollegesofOptometry). It is called “Association of Schools and Colleges of Optometry”. It features interesting and fun videos, such as Doctors of Optometry talking about their journey to optometry, and from ASCO’s public awareness campaign Optometry Gives Me Life. These are very entertaining as well as informational about the field of optometry.
