“As an Optometrist, I have the opportunity to help my patients improve and protect their vision. I like the idea that I’m restoring more than patients’ vision. I’m restoring their ability to see and appreciate the world around them-their loved ones and friends, the beauty of nature-and the ability to see it all clearly. I’ve always been happy with my choice of Optometry as a career and can’t imagine doing anything else. Who could ask for a better job?”
“I chose Optometry because I knew I wanted to be part of a profession that allowed me to take care of people. Plus, I love the challenging environment that it offers within the medical field. Sight is such a precious gift and I love helping my patients see. I feel very blessed to do what I love, all while being able to spend time with my family.”
