    As a former student and now an experienced practitioner in optometry, I enjoy reading the students newsletter “Foresight” whenever I have the opportunity to pick-up a copy.
    The information in it is invaluable about getting into optometry school (i.e.- which school to choose, etc.), finding desirable residency positions and the different scopes of practice available to new graduates once they get licensed to practice. Staying involved with organized optometry is another area emphasized in this magazine.

    I was a little disappointed to see an ad for commercial vision center employment (i.e.- National Vision Associates; Fall 2016 issue) among all of these respectable/reputable optometric practice opportunities and residencies in your student magazine. When I was at ICO, the leaders of our institution refused in any way to promote commercial practice. I tend to agree with them, based on my experiences along with many of my colleagues.

    Why does the “Foresight” publish advertisements for retail optometry?
    This ad might be misinterpreted as your student magazine promoting commercial practice.
