The New England College of Optometry in Boston, Massachusetts, is the 2nd oldest continually operating college of optometry in the United States. It was originally established as the Klein School of Optics in 1894 by Dr. August Andreas Klein, an ophthalmologist. The college moved to several locations around Boston, and was known as the Massachusetts School of Optometry and the Massachusetts College of Optometry until it came to reside in its current location in the Back Bay section of Boston.

The College offers both Doctor of Optometry (O.D.) and Master of Science in Vision Science degrees. Special emphasis is placed on direct contact with patients, and to this end students make use of the College's affiliation with the New England Eye Institute network of eye care centers.

As of January 2016, the president of the college is Dr. Clifford Scott.[1] It has an enrollment of over 400 students.
