Transcript Eyeing A Futuristic View For Optometry More than 2000 students had graduated from the College of Optometry in the past four decades, and half of them were Texas optometrists. "The College of Optometry is the only one in Texas and one of 17 in the country," said Steve Gubitz, director of development at the College of Optometry. The 400 students enrolled were working in one of the top-two optometry schools in the nation, Gubitz said. The college celebrated 40 years of educational service at a gala that would kick off a campaign to raise $5 million. The money would be used for state- of-the-art equipment, scholarships and an expansion of college facilities, as well as to fund the proposed plan to name the college's building after J. Davis Armistead. Armistead was a regent emeritus of the UH System and a past president of the college's Foundation for Education and Research in Vision. "He has contributed a lot to the college," said Joel Cummings, a former UH System regent and a member of the building-naming committee. Vision 2000 was the name of the campaign, but was also the futuristic view of what optometry would be like in the year 2000, Gubitz said. Money from the long-term campaign would be contributed from alumnae, optometrists, friends of optometrists and corporations, Gubitz said. A celebration dinner for the 40th anniversary of the College of Optometry was held at the University Hilton. -Kristine Fahrenholz Doctors and students from the College of Optometry gave Vision Screening tests for all residents. All students, faculty and staff were given discounts on an extensive eye examination. Administrators for the college were trying to raise $5 million dollars fornew equipment, scholarships and college facilities. Photo by Gary Sapone.
