And, I'm sure the 13 year old I saw on Thursday with an asymptomatic retinal detachment was happy I was there to see him. He came in with broken glasses and left in a car to the retinal specialist for treatment. His mom gave me a big hug and thank you for being there for her son.
days like that make me say THANK GOD I got out of the lab!!
What kind of lab job did you have before OD school, and how long did you work there for? How did you decide to go into optometry and did you consider any other health care professions?
Your satisfaction in story about the 13 yr old shows that you are truly dedicated and care about your patients. Just out of curiosity, are there times when you wish you could be the specialist so that you could see your patients throughout their condition without having to refer them?
Forgive me for the battery of questions, but I'm trying to decide between 2 different professions myself. I only really considered optometry at the last minute... I'd really like to hear how you (or anyone else for that matter) chose to go into optometry

What a moran!
An MBA is more marketable than an OD degree.
You are all full of yourselves.
