I look forward to accepting new members and meeting you all soon.

Why I Chose Optometry: I am personally very fascinated by the structure and development of the eyes and how they mature from adolescence to adulthood.Optometry is the best career choice for me since it provides me the opportunity to help others improve their vision and see the beautiful world around them as is really is. Also, it is a stable occupation that will always prosper universally.

Why I chose Optometry: I absolutely love the one on one patient interaction in a low stress environment. Interning has allowed me to witness countless exams and there is nothing like seeing the relieve in a patient's overall body language and mood when the optometrist is able to answer their questions and really help make a difference in their life that many take for granted.
