The 30 and 40 year reunions for the classes of 1986 and 1976 were held In June.

These reunions enabled the classes a chance to view our new on-campus training facilities, our expanded UM Eyecare clinic, and some of our research laboratories engaged in the science that drives optometry’s future. The classes were then able to share the unique stories and memories of their time with the University over dinner.

If you are in one of the following graduating classes we’d loved to see you next June; 2007 (Tuesday 6th June), 1997 (Thursday 8th June), and 1987 (Tuesday 13th June) and 1977 (Tuesday 15th June). Please pass this along to colleagues whom may be interested. Looking forward to seeing many of you there, please email RSVP to

The reunions are an important part of the Department’s engagement with our alumni and will continue in future. A thank you must go out to Bang Bui, Tom Cougan, Daryl Guest and Andrew Anderson for their assistance organising and facilitating these reunions.
