From its inception in 1891, Review of Optometry has been and will continue to be an informative friend to optometrists, an advocate for the advancement of the profession and a mentor providing practical and useful knowledge. This retrospective gives us—and hopefully, you—an opportunity to recollect the many accomplishments and successes that the profession has made in the past century and a quarter, which have been reflected and even presaged in the pages of this publication.
In December 2015, Jeanne I. Ruff, OD, was approached by an optician in Gloucester, about 16 miles away on a fairly rural peninsula in the Chesapeake Bay.

Jacqueline Davis, OD, MPH, will be honored as the American Optometric Association (AOA) Optometric Educator of the Year at Optometry’s Meeting.
