OGS Appoints Lois Schoenbrun Interim Executive Director

Optometry Giving Sight (OGS), established to address the debilitating problem of vision impairment worldwide, has appointed Lois Schoenbrun, CAE (Ret.), FAAO, as interim Executive Director.

Ms Schoenbrun formerly served as executive director of the American Academy of Optometry and the American Academy of Optometry Foundation from 1996 to 2019. Her tenure at the Academy saw substantial growth in membership, annual meeting attendance, and assets, as well as significantly enhanced standing within the optometric community.

We are delighted to have Ms Schoenbrun’s experience and knowledge of the profession during this time of critical need for global eye and vision care services

As the current President of Schoenbrun Consulting, LLC, Ms Schoenbrun provides fund-raising, strategic planning, governance, and executive coaching services clients such as the Sport and Social Industry Association, the World Council of Optometry, and the World Optometry Foundation.

“We are delighted to have Ms Schoenbrun’s experience and knowledge of the profession during this time of critical need for global eye and vision care services,” said Dr Juan Carlos Aragón, Board Chair for the U.S. and President, CooperVision Specialty EyeCare.

“She brings many years of proven organisational and leadership skills, and the interpersonal skills needed to represent OGS well to our global partners.”

As the joint initiative of the World Council of Optometry, the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness and the Brien Holden Vision Institute, OGS funds programs to deliver vision care, train local eye care professionals, and develop sustainable infrastructure in developing countries.

OGS expects to launch a search for a new Executive Director this year.
