The Optometry Clinic at PolyU

The School operates four clinics which are open to the public. They are The Optometry Clinic at PolyU, the community clinics at the Integrated Community Health Centre (ICHC) at Lai King, at Our Lady of Maryknoll Hospital in Wong Tai Sin and at the Sik Sik Yuen – The Hong Kong Polytechnic University Optometry Centre.

Regarded as the best optometry teaching clinic in Asia, senior optometry students receive their clinical training and work experience in these facilities. Apart from teaching, the Clinic also supports clinical vision/eye research and acts as a resource for eye care in Hong Kong.

The Optometry Clinic and the other three clinics are university teaching clinics. Teaching and research are important functions of clinics. To facilitate research and teaching in vision and eye care, patients' data may be used for teaching and research purposes, but patients' identities will not be revealed in any teaching material or research results. Patients registered in our clinics shall mean acceptance of the above terms and conditions. Patients are still fully protected by the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance.
