Witty and insightful commentary on optometric practice from long-time humor columnist Montgomery Vickers, OD.

Put Your Foot Down

Arguably the most important organ, your feet deserve all the care in the world if they’re going to carry you around it.

Love Makes the World Go Round

"Like" counts for something, too.

Keep Your Friends Close and Your Elders Closer

The older, the wiser.

Presence is the Greatest Present

Live in the moment; life is constantly giving and taking.

Pen to Paper

First, I’ll teach you what a letter is. Then, I’ll show you how to write one.

Remedy This

Every family has their own “tried-and-true” recipe. Does it actually work? Definitely not, but let’s avoid bursting any bubbles.

Food for Thought

Eat what you want—and hope you don’t live long enough to deal with the consequences.

Take the Road Less Traveled

You don’t need to be like everyone to be someone.

Words From the Wise

Yeah, I’m referring to me and my advice. Take it or leave it.

If Optometry Were a Perfect Place

Unfortunately, it’s not. But we can dream, right?
