Optometric Historical Society
Members of the Board of Directors of the Optometric Historical Society (OHS) and Optometry Cares – The AOA Foundation recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding that places OHS under the auspices of Optometry Cares. We hope that this arrangement will result in a more widespread distribution of historical documents and in fortifying efforts to preserve optometric history.
OHS began 40 years ago as a brainchild of Dr. Henry Hofstetter and a few other dedicated optometrists. It has had a low profile for these past four decades. We are publishing a series of historical vignettes so that OHS members and those interested in optometric history can learn more about what went before us.
