I have a tendency to be influenced by the people that I meet and talk with. I often find the stories of the events and happenings of other people’s lives at least interesting and many times fascinating. I believe that this is one of the reasons that I love optometry. We are truly in the “people” business.
But beyond patient care, optometry has many other opportunities to meet other people and learn new things. From organized optometry meetings, like the local society, state associations and the American Optometric Association, to optometric education and the American Academy of Optometry, there are many opportunities to interface with other people, see other viewpoints and expand your horizons.
