Dean David Damari

Thank you for your interest in contributing to the future of our profession. Michigan College of Optometry is a leader in building the future of our profession and the pages on this site will give you an opportunity so see how we are doing that! Whether you decide to give a one-time gift to help us keep our equipment up to date or give a struggling patient much-needed eye care, or you start an endowment to keep our students’ debt as low as we can, we truly appreciate how you are helping us in our mission to serve our students, our profession, and our patients.
