From Getting My First Pair of Glasses at 2 Years Old to Moving Across he Country to Become a Doctor of Optometry by SCCO Student Ambassador Adam Moret
When I was two years old, my parents noticed that my left eye had an involuntary turning in that my right eye didn’t share. My eyes didn’t yoke together and work as a team. One trip to the eye doctor, and I had my very first pair of glasses.
I haven’t known a life with uncorrected vision with eyeglasses, and I couldn’t be more thankful for this fact. Vision has always been an interest of mine, even when I thought my life was taking a different path during my undergraduate program. However, when I had the amazing opportunity to work as an optician, I knew that a career in eyecare was the right path.
