Optometry is a great field that covers a full range of patient care, including refractions, diagnosing and comanaging systemic disease, vision therapy, minor surgery, and more. We are the only field that can look directly inside the body daily (viewing running blood vessels and nerves) without surgery, while the patient is awake! The eyes are truly the window to the health of the rest of the body, and optometrists are often the first to identify patient risks for conditions such as diabetes, cancer, hypertension, and much more. I am very excited to be a part of such a fascinating and growing field!
