Salus University didn’t mask it’s admiration and appreciation for Joel Silbert, OD ‘73, FAAO, on his last official day at The Eye Institute (TEI) June 30, 2020.
After being in on the ground floor of advancing the profession of optometry over the past 46 years at Salus PCO, Dr. Joel Silbert — professor and director of the Contact Lens Program and former chief of the Cornea and Specialty Contact Lens Service at TEI — has decided to call it a career. He officially retired June 30, 2020.
In college, Andrew Meagher, OD ‘15, Resident ‘16, FAAO, developed the skill of being able to cut his own hair. He became pretty good at it, too. Little did Dr. Meagher know, though, that skill would come in handy during the lengthy home quarantine as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Writing this message during the COVID-19 crisis stay-at-home restrictions, I hope that this Salus communication finds you, your families, and your co-workers safe as you support them along with your communities.
