The New England College of Optometry (NECO) recently broke ground on its new clinical campus, which will reportedly include a new flagship optometric clinic and optical dispensary, a clinical subspecialty service with rehabilitative vision care and clinical research, and a state-of-the-art student clinical training facility.
According to NECO, the initial phase of the construction will be the build-out of NECO's Center for Eye Care projected to open to the public in March. Housed in the same building as the schools current New England Eye Clinic, the new center will reportedly be located at street level and will have a name change.
The second phase of construction will include the creation of a specialty clinic area offering low vision rehabilitation and occupational therapy for visually impaired patients. And adjacent spaces will be added for clinical research, student clinical instrumentation training, clinical simulation training, and electro-diagnostic testing, which will reportedly open later this year.
