The New England College of Optometry, and the New England Eye Institute(NEEI)are passionate about making a difference in the lives of visually impaired individuals. Our mission is to improve the visual health of populations through excellence in collaborative and community-oriented patient care, education, and research. Through ongoing collaboration with area health professionals, NEEI offers specialized all-inclusive services that begin with comprehensive eye care. In addition to operating comprehensive eye centers in Boston and Roslindale, we serve a diverse array of cultures based on race and ethnicity, age (children to older adults), homeless individuals, and individuals with disabilities through the following programs.
1. Vision to Learn is a collaborative initiative with public school systems to address disparities in the lack for understanding of the importance of comprehensive eye care after a failed school vision screening.
2. Individuals with Disabilities Service seeks to improve access to quality vision care to individuals with disabilities through collaborations with schools and facilities serving individuals with cognitive and physical impairments.
3. Elder’s Right to Sight Collaborative strives to improve the visual function of Boston’s seniors through prevention, education, access, environmental modification, and service delivery.
4. Vision to Care is a program offered in conjunction with the Boston Health Care to the Homeless Program (BHCHP) to provide eye care and glasses to homeless individuals.
