Educational Background "I've worked and studied hard to get to where I am today. My education is ongoing, because I want to make sure I can offer my patients the best vision care possible. In the field of eyecare there are new developments daily. In light of this, I regularly attend continuing education courses, to keep current in the latest procedures and treatments in ophthalmology."
