Origin of name – OPTOGRAPHY:
The word “OPTOGRAPHY” comes from two Greek words; ‘Opto’ means ‘of sight’ or ‘eye’ and ‘Graphy’ means ‘field of study’ or ‘related to writing ‘; Optography means “Study of Eyesight”! According to the dictionary it means “The fixation of an image on the retina”. The name OPTOGRAPHY is designated by ‘’That Optometrist’’ Md. Zakaria Midya (CO-Founder & CEO of Optography).
“Optography is neither an association nor an organisation. We’re an independent, apolitical & non-profitable educational resource dedicated solely in Optometry Fraternity.’’
Optography was established on 1st December , 2015 at Kolkata, West Bengal. Initiated by a professor & his Optometry fellow . The senior most experienced Optometrist Gobinda Chandra Mondal (Founder & Advisor) and his young dynamic disciple Optometrist Md. Zakaria Midya (CO-Founder & CEO) with the mission to ‘’Educate, Inform and Inspire’’ all things of eye and eye cares to the Optometry field and in general for the betterment of the industry as well as society.
