Dr. Harold Davis completed his doctor of optometry in 1945 at the Northern Illinois College of Optometry. Prior to entering school, his father suggested two choices for a career path: podiatry or optometry. Thankfully, my grandfather chose the latter and started three generations of professionals committed to excellence in eye care. My grandfather still practices 5 days a week in Oaklawn, IL, and retains a loyal following. He was a pioneer in developing contact lens technology. His list of accomplishments is long and impressive but the legacy he has created within his family is what carries on his vision.
