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.
