Why I'm an Optometrist 

I became interested in optometry because I genuinely love helping people and having them enjoy the best vision they can. Having been exposed to this profession at a young age during my yearly exams, shadowing different professionals in the field and working at several offices, I learned to appreciate the profession and all it offers. 



Belle Plaine

I enjoy talking to patients about their ocular health and helping them understand their care.
