Ok, another question for you guys: What made you decide to go into optometry? Aside from obviously liking eyes,vision, etc. I mean, out of all the possible majors and careers, what convinced you to choose optometry? I like doing various things and there are several fields that interest me too. I am really leaning to optometry for a few reasons - 1) It seems pretty interesting 2) The courses will be an exciting challenge (I like accomplishing things that I originally thought I couldn't....like calculus! 3) I think the career will provide me with a good solid future. I will be able to provide for myself and my family (when I have one) and I can pay my loans back without such a struggle...4) There isn't alot of stress in the field and it's usually a solid 40 hr work week. Are these good reasons to go into the field or am I looking at this wrong? Once again, thanks in advance!! Ya'll are great!
