Dr. Daniel Nast has been in the optometry business for a long time — a really long time.

Nast recently turned 100, the Chicago Tribune reports.


He sees patients at the Mind-Eye Institute in Northbrook a couple of times a week. He also works at another practice on Saturdays.

“I don’t think it’s unusual. But everyone else does,” he said of his long career. He began practicing optometry 75 years ago.

“Being 100 years old, I think that’s what’s keeping him going, is working,” said Nast’s son, Richard Nast, who is an optician.

The elder Nast said he plans to work as long as he’s able because he enjoys helping people.
