Today’s news:

Dr. Kara Pasner is named “Most Influential Women”

Brooklyn Daily


Specs out to Dr. Kara Pasner, a professor of vision care technology at City Tech. The “Eye Gal” has been named one of the optical industry’s most influential women by Vision Monday, an industry mag.

Our pal Dr. Kara is only one of 11 women so named. The report is the most widely read and anticipated feature, so this is really a big deal.

“Dr. Pasner was chosen for serving as a role model for aspiring opticians,” said Marge Axelrad, senior veep at Jobson Optical Group, publisher of the magazine.

She’s a full-time member of the faculty at the college and has been in the optical industry for the past 20 years, with offices in Midwood, Manhattan and New Jersey. Wow, she really gets around.

“My students are always curious.” Dr. Kara told Standing O. Adding, “Teaching is very different than practicing.” You ain’t kidding.

Not only is she a professor and an eye doc, but Dr. Kara also writes for industry publications and is the low vision optometrist on the New York team of the first US Food and Drug Administration approved Implantable Miniature Telescope from Centrasight, Inc.

What an eyeful.
