The addition accommodated the school’s surge in enrolment to meet the high demand for eye care professionals across the country. Featuring a large atrium, the 2-storey building expansion will enhance the profile of the school while providing additional teaching space and essential student resources.
The project included a 125-seat lecture theatre, the Witer Learning Resource Centre, a new home for the Museum of Vision Science, as well as student study rooms and computer areas. It also provided expanded space for the TLC laser centre and a new Founders’ Hall.
