AO's Ophthalmic Lens Designers
Dr. Estelle Glancy

Wellesley College -  Class of 1905

Special thanks to Wellesley College for providing the documents for this page on Dr. Glancy


The handwritten except below is from a 1952 Autobiographical writing by Dr. Glancy , following her retirement from AO. The article begins by stating "This personal account of the years from 1918 to 1951 might be entitled: The Evoluation of A Lens Designer". This is a fascinating personal account of her days at AO, and as always she was most humble about her achievements.
