Today we celebrate our profession as Optometrists. We are humbled to be able to help our patients see better and improve their quality of life through vision and eye health.
So how do you become an Optometrist? After completing an undergraduate degree, we go to Optometry school for an additional 4 years + residency (optional). That’s a lot of eye school that allows us to not only prescribe glasses and contact lenses but we also diagnose, manage and treat eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts, dry eye disease, eye infections, eye allergies, trauma, macular degeneration, eye emergencies to name a few.
As Optometrists, we are passionate about eye health & educating you using our social media platforms & during your appointments. We believe in early detection & prevention to maintain optimal eye health starting in infancy. If you haven’t had an eye exam this year, this is a great opportunity to book your appointment today. So today let’s be grateful for our gift of sight.
