National Opticians Month: Let's Bring It Back!
January 1999 was celebrated throughout the United States as National Opticians Month. Gary R. Aiken of Minnetonka, Minnesota, was president of the Opticians Association of America, which sponsored the observance. I believe he addressed Mr. Bill Clinton, the president at the time with this moving statement.
Thank you Mr. Gary Aiken, your words have inspired me and many other optical professionals to provide our patients with the best eyecare we can give them.
