My favorite part of taking care of eyes is the joy it brings to people’s lives as you bring them into a clear and beautiful world. The satisfaction of bringing an uncorrected 12-year-old -2.00 D myope into a world he didn’t know he was missing. The elation of the Lasik patient that is handicapped without a correction and suddenly enters into the sighted world without any visual correction. Bottom line is, ” I enjoy making people happy with their vision.”
