UMSL Optometry Debuts New Research Website



 Bassi Creates Research Website for UMSL Optometry



The College of Optometry has a new Research Webpage (actually a series of pages): http://www.umsl.edu/research-in-optometry/.  It consists of links for faculty research (linked directly to the College faculty pages), information about the Optometry Scholars Program, as well as recent publications and presentations from the College.  It also has separate links (and archives) for  Clinical/Evidence-based studies of interest to clinicians as well as links for interesting recent topics of
Vision Science from around the internet. 

The goals of this site are to: highlight activity in the College, be a recruitment tool for students and residents, provide a resource for alumni and other practitioners to keep current on research and evidence-based protocols, and hopefully bring attention for the general public interested in optometry.

It is hoped that this site will continue to grow and become a useful research for clinicians or anyone interested in vision.  Carl Bassi would welcome feedback about the site in general.  If you have suggestions for articles to highlight on the site, please send them to him, bassi@umsl.edu.     

The “Links of the Week” will be updated every Monday.  Check back often and see what is new.

Please feel free to share the link with anyone who might be interested.

Four years ago each of you began a journey together—not knowing what to expect or what to do, but you quickly learned the next four years would be a challenge.  Through it all though, you stood tough.  Quite frankly, it wasn’t always easy and I am sure moments questioning your decision crossed your mind—maybe more than once.  Always remember this: If it was meant to be easy then everyone would be here, but that is not the case.  You are one of a small grou…

A Profile of Dr. David Hoel; The Story about an UMSL Alumnus Who Cares

There are many desirable qualities for individuals being considered for admission into the UMSL College of Optometry.  Certainly, a solid academic record, good interpersonal communication skills, and extensive shadowing – or better yet experience – with established optometric practices are important factors.  However, looking into the eyes of an applicant to try to determine why they want to be an optometrist is very important as well.  Will they be the type of individual who will be very dedicated to caring about their patient’s visual and overall health?  Will they take the time to serve their profession and their community?  Meet David Hoel, OD (’98) who personifies these qualities and more as he continues to be a wonderful ambassador to UMSL while representing what is truly good about the profession of optometry. 


His interest in optometry began during college when he explored several career options and, after shadowing several different optometrists, decided this would be an exce…
