“As an Optometrist with a scientific background, my goal is to provide the best potential
vision to all my patients with the most technological designs supported by strong
research. Hence, it is not uncommon to have a discussion about the most up-to-date
treatment and technology for various ocular conditions during your visit in my office.
I am most interested in challenging contact lens exams and myopia prevention for
children. I look forward to seeing you and talking to you about the latest technology in
eye care.”
