While I was finishing my degree, I got a job working for an optometrist who encouraged me to consider optometry school. I began shadowing other optometrists and taking the science classes required to apply for optometry school, and everything fell into place! When I saw what a positive impact an eye exam can have on someone’s life, I fell in love with eye care!
