Dr. Hodur is a member of the Cornea and Contact Lens faculty and is actively involved in the Cornea and Contact Lens Clinic.
I joined the ICO faculty in July 1975, right after graduating. My career goals were to be involved in education, to remain current in all aspects of optometry, and to participate in the private practice of optometry. Over the years, I have developed a love for education. The challenge that education brings is something that fits my mindset. I strive to understand concepts so I can explain them to someone who may not be familiar with the topic area. Breaking down complex topics, especially optics, down to a level where basic understanding is possible is a passion of mine. Using basic topics in optical understanding and building to more complex systems is the goal I set for teaching. ICO has given me the opportunity to develop my education philosophies in optics along with the freedom to educate students in a way that I see as necessary for optometric skills.
