As part of a review on women in ophthalmology at Wills Eye Hospital (Philadelphia, Pa), I designed a 1-page questionnaire that was sent to 90 female members of the Wills Eye Ex-Residents Society and active members of the hospital staff. Women were given the option to include their name. Information was requested regarding their position(s) and years at Wills and their current professional activities. They were asked to rate their career satisfaction from 1 (not at all) to 5 (very satisfied). In addition, they rated their overall experience at Wills from 1 (poor) to 5 (excellent). They were asked whether they had encountered sex discrimination or sexual harassment at Wills and, if so, how much it affected their overall experience (1 = minimal; 5 = very significant). I asked for comments on their association with Wills as well as reflections on being a woman in the field of ophthalmology.
