Books and Chapters in Books

Books and Chapters in Books

If you know anything about me you know I like to write. To be truthful, writing can be very hard and difficult to do...and almost impossible to do well. (What I actually like, is when I see what I've written in print!)  But on those occasions where I think I have come as close to perfection as possible, it oftentimes shows up in a book or book chapter. As you take a look at the books below...please note the many individuals I have had an opportunity to work with as a team. Without them, none of these projects would have been possible. My heartfelt thanks to all. DM

ICO Celebrates 140 Years AND a Faculty Member's New Book!



The Illinois College of Optometry has been in existence for 140 years (...predecessor schools were Northern Illinois College of Ophthalmology and Otology, Needles Institute, Northern Illinois College of Optometry, Monroe College of Optometry, and Chicago College of Optometry) and has always been at the cutting edge of excellence in clinical education in optometry.

Many of ICO's faculty not only taught state of the art clinical education...but also published significant works as well. Dr. Leo Manas was well known for his "little black book", Visual Analysis, on how to do the 21 point optometric case analysis, Dr. Coleman Hatfield on the "Joy of Optometry" (as well as his books about his famous ancestors in the McCoy vs Hatfield family feud) , and numerous books by ICO's past president, Dr. Alfred Rosenbloom. One of my previous books was even recognized as one of the top ten optometry books for the year by the faculty of the UAB School of Optometry.

Well, this year, I and my colleagues from Southern (Dr. Marc Taub) and NOVA (Dr. Mary Bartuccio) published what I hope to be a seminal work on the topic of eye and vision care for those with disability. Many awesome individuals from multiple professions played a role in its creation. I'm particularly proud of the influence ICO has had upon this text.

ICO's role included two of my colleagues as co-authors of the chapter on Neuroplasticity (see photo lower right. From left to right Robert Donati, PhD; Yi Pang, OD, PhD; Arol Augsburger, OD (President of ICO) and myself). I presented a copy of the book to Dr. Augsburger this AM as well (top photographs). This presentation, although not an official part of the 140 Years of Existence Celebration for the Illinois College of Optometry, certainly made me feel that I and my colleagues have contributed to this celebratory occasion in some small way.

Others who are a part of the ICO family and its history who contributed to this book include: Drs. Nadine Girgis (former ICO Peds/BV Resident), Sidney Groffman, Brad Haberhehl (ICO Alumni) , Robert Jesperson (Medical Director at Neuman Family Services where I and my students examine very special patients), Elizabeth Berry-Kravis (although she is an MD, PhD from Rush Medical School and Hospital, she and I and other ICOers have done research together) and Ken Ciuffreda and Len Press (both were Dr. and Mrs. Dominick M. Maino Visiting Professors at ICO).

It may take a village to raise a child....but it takes an ICO family to help me publish a book.

I want to thank my co-editors and all the authors of this text. You made this possible. DM

ICO at the Top of NBEO Once Again....



 
 
 
 
 
This Illinois College of Optometry students taking Part 1 of the National Board of Examiners in Optometry  assessment had a passing rate of 96.2% while the national average was 85.4% for all first time takers and 80.5% for all persons taking the exam.
 
All ICO students and alumni should be very proud of this accomplishment. I know that all of us who are faculty members are very proud of those taking this examination.

Just one more reason to consider ICO as your optometry college of choice if you want to be an optometrist! (Of course I might be just a bit biased!!) Want more info about the Illinois College of Optometry? Click here. DM
