Optometric Historical Society to honor Dr. Irv Borish

May 7, 2012

Every year the Optometric Historical Society holds a Reminisce-IN honoring optometry’s heritage and history. This year the meeting will be held during Optometry’s Meeting® in Chicago on Thursday, June 28 at 3 p.m.

The meeting will honor the life and contributions of Irvin Borish, O.D., considered by many as the father of modern optometry.

Dr. Borish passed away at age 99 on March 3, 2012.

The tribute to Dr. Borish will be led by his longtime friend Alden N. Haffner, O.D., president emeritus of the State University of New York State College of Optometry.

Dr. Borish was known as the architect of modern optometry. He was a member of the founding committee of the School of Optometry at Indiana University. He authored the definitive reference text on clinical optometry and was named the most influential optometrist of the 20th century.

You will not want to miss this stirring tribute to one of the great men of modern optometry.
