Why I'm an Optometrist 

I am an OD because I have always wanted to help people. When I was 16 I started working in an optical shop and have found that eyes are a fantastic way to help people.





I hope that patients feel that our time spent together was meaningful, enjoyable and that they are better off because of it.
