    History of Opticians From a 100+ Year Old Book



    FEBRUARY 4, 2019 INDUSTRY

    I was handed down a copy of The Optical Journal from 1908, which was passed down from my Clinic Manager’s previous generations who all took pride in their professions in the Optical industry. I have a sense of pride in being able to read this publication, knowing the history of those who have previously read it and deemed it important enough to keep and pass down after all of these years. We work in an industry that changes people’s lives for the better and I too would hope I could pass such a book of rich history down another generation to someone who would appreciate it as much.






    According to the Review of Optometry, this publication was originally created in 1891, known as The Optician, to meet the needs of refracting opticians. After a short hiatus from its earlier version, in 1895 The Optical Journal, is introduced. In 1910 The Optical Journal and Review of Optometry becomes a consolidated publication when the journal absorbs a three-year old publication The Optical Review.
