TO give its Bachelor of Optometry course a competitive edge, UCSI University has set up an in-house optometry store at its Kuala Lumpur Campus (South Wing). The store was launched in collaboration with Focus World Vision Care Group (FWVC Group), a leading optical retailer.

According to UCSI Group founder and chairman Datuk Peter Ng, the launch was in line with the University’s “praxis” (a process by which a theory, lesson, or skill is enacted, embodied, or realised) approach that focuses on merging industry expectations with academia. The UCSI Optometry Centre serves as one of UCSI’s many Praxis Centres – in-house business entities – where students gain hands-on working experience and apply classroom knowledge.
