Cynthia H. Jun, O.D., F.A.A.O.
"Ever since I can remember, I have enjoyed the sciences. After I received my Bachelor of Science Degree, I became interested in optometry. I chose the profession because it enables me to affect the quality of a patient's life and how they function day to day. It's very rewarding to know that I've made it easier for someone to read a book, watch a movie, or see a loved one. "
My Educations Becomes Your Education
“The best treatment for any condition is patient education. I have learned that the more a patient learns about his or her particular condition, whether it’s myopia or a progressive disease, the more effective the treatment. We all are more inclined to follow a regimen if we know not only what we’re being treated for, but why. Taking the time to share my knowledge with patients makes a big difference in their care.”
