"Vision loss is one of people’s greatest fears. By being able to help preserve and improve sight, I am able to help improve my patient’s overall quality of life. I take great pride and joy in being a part of that.”

Education Improves Engagement

“I have always taken my education seriously because my education is what gives me the knowledge to care for patients. The things I have learned, and continue to learn, are what enable me to treat patients to the highest standard of care. Additionally, I am able to pass on my knowledge so that patients are able to understand their condition and take an active role in their care.”
