How to Choose the Right Optometry School For You11:08 PM
You've done it! You've made the decision to devote the rest of your life to eye balls and their care and keeping. I know that may seem like an exaggeration, but when you become an optometrist, you really do think about eyes all day long. When you aren't at work seeing patients, you are talking to your optometrist friends about eyes, talking to your family about their eye problems, talking to your outside of optometry friends about their eyes, talking to total strangers that ask what you do for a living about their eyes. Just as a word of advice, when you are on vacation and don't want to talk about eyes for a few days, pretend that you have a different career. White lies can't hurt in this case. There is nothing like hiking Yosemite and having to talk to a stranger about their uncle's cousin's cataract surgery complication all the way up the mountain.
