Class of 1968



Mark W. Eger, OD, FAAO has been in private practice for 46 years in Coraopolis, PA.

Dr. Eger became a Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry in 1971 after encouragement by his father, and he is happy to say that his son is a Fellow as well. Dr. Eger served on the Board of Directors of the Academy for 14 years and served as president of the organization for two years. He now sees patients on a half-time basis, giving him more time to enjoy their five grandchildren with his wife, Susan.
