It is well known that millions of Americans suffer from visual impairment in some way, shape, or form. One would expect the number of Americans suffering from such to only rise as the population continues to age.
Early last week, Nova Southeastern University (Nova) College of Optometry announced that it accepted a donation from National Vision, Inc. (NVI) that included naming rights for the College of Optometry.
The school will be renamed Nova Southeastern University National Vision College of Optometry for an initial term of 10 years. Nova has planned a naming ceremony for the College of Optometry on Oct. 9.
ODs quickly spread word of the College of Optometry’s name change via social media, expressing shock and anger.
