Pre-Optometry Professional Society (POPS)

President: Amanda Bernardi

Pre-Optometry Professional Society is an organization that works to inform students about the fields of optometry, ophthalmology, and other eyecare specialties. We encourage strong relationships between students and practicing optometrists in addition to providing hands-on experience for vision care through shadowing, volunteering, and employment opportunities. In addition, we attend state-wide POPS meetings and get to know our fellow pre-optometry students at other prominent universities. Our members are active participants in the Waco community as eyecare educators and service leaders. We have local optometrists and optometry school representatives speak to us throughout the year and we attend conferences to learn more about the field. We hope you will join our tight-knit community in the fall!
