From there, his responsibilities grew to becoming an optician, lab technician and later, while attending college, an optometric technician. When asked why he chose to be an optometrist he replied, “I enjoy that eye care differs from many other healthcare fields in that we get the opportunity to spend more one-on-one time with patients. Eyesight is so critical in most everything we do. My goal is to allow our patients to utilize that gift. I strive to help my patients see as well as
possible for as long as possible”.
