When did you know that you wanted to be an optometrist?
I grew up knowing that I wanted to be in the medical field. I wore glasses and contact lenses most of my life, and realized I should look into it after talking to a friend that was planning to go to optometry school. I job shadowed and knew it was right for me.
Favorite part of being an optometrist
The relief and joy I can give a person by removing something as small as a grain of sand from their eye
