Why did you choose optometry as your profession?
The decision hit me during an optics lecture in my undergrad physics course. I ran home, researched optometry & knew it was the perfect fit for me.
What do you want your patients to know about your approach to care?
I believe that patients should understand the importance of eye exams and what I’m looking at, so that’s why I take the time to explain my findings, in addition to determining the best prescription for their glasses & contact lenses.
