A Vision for a Better Tomorrow
At the core of Zenni Optical’s mission lies a commitment to “See better and live better.” Beyond providing affordable and stylish eyewear, Zenni aims to contribute to the broader landscape of eye care and foster the growth of future optometrists. With a vision for a world where access to quality eye care is a reality for all, Zenni is dedicated to making a tangible impact on the field of optometry.
Supporting the Future of Optometry: The Eye Care Access Scholarship
In a significant stride towards this commitment, Zenni Optical proudly supports optometry students through initiatives like the Eye Care Access Scholarship, which is now in its second year. This scholarship is designed to empower aspiring optometrists with the resources they need to excel in their education and contribute meaningfully to the field of optometry. This year, Zenni awarded five deserving first-year students with $2500 to support their education and journey in the optometric field.
One such deserving recipient is Trevor Stiede, a first-year optometry student at Midwestern University Arizona College of Optometry. Zenni Optical is delighted to recognize his passion for improving eye care accessibility and enhancing the well-being of individuals through optometric excellence. This scholarship not only celebrates Trevor’s achievements but also signifies Zenni’s commitment to nurturing the next generation of optometrists who share the vision of making quality eye care accessible to all. We are also proud that the local paper, The Glendale Star, has recognized Trevor’s journey and highlighted Zenni’s commitment to support and grow the eyecare field.
