Larry Alexander, OD FAAO (1947 - 2016)


My heart is broken hearing of Larry's passing. Anyone who knew Larry was a better person for it. Last week Larry asked me to remove EyeLessons in its entirety so I reluctantly took it down. He also told me I could do with it whatever I want with it, so I'm putting it back up so others can enjoy Larry's style of education for a little longer.  EyeLessons was a labor of love, and I was constantly amazed at the content output by one of Optometry's leading educators.

Larry, I will miss you. It was an honor working with you and calling you a friend.

The Socratic Educational Process

The essence of the message contained herein is that we have grown accustomed to accepting just because it exists….Intellectual Apathy. We do the same things over and over without ever asking why we are doing them.   We are bombarded with the concept of thinking outside the box while every message delivery is designed to keep us thinking inside the box.  When we think about boxes we need to reflect on the old song Little Boxes.
