Glaucoma 1969 to 2009

on September 17th, 2009 | Filed under Optoblog

My dad is finally cleaning out his garage of old optometry books and stuff- now that he’s been retired for a few years. (Does anyone know of some niche market for old edition optometry books? We’re just planning on giving them to D.I.)

I saw this newspaper clipping tucked in one of his books. It appears to be from the AOA News December 1969. My how things have changed in the last 40 years. Interesting also is how phaco was a new technology.

    Wow this is so cool!

    It makes me want to go to the library and look at the microforms to find old news…

    The question is, what will the future bring… I see good things 🙂
