About

"I choose optometry because helping people see better is extremely rewarding. I especially enjoy working with children, they remind us to seek joy every day. Examining children takes an extra skill set to make them feel comfortable while you gather the necessary information. It is a delight and an honor when children and their families trust you to care for them." — Sara Downes
