I am so relieved and happy to have qualified as an Optometrist! The professional training period helped me to make the transition from university to working in practice smoothly.
During this time, I was able to build my confidence as well as develop my clinical and communication skills. One of the things I enjoy most about being an Optometrist is meeting and building professional rapport with patients from all walks of life. It is so nice to be able to meet such a wide variety of people on a daily basis and help improve the quality of their lives through improvement in their vision.
I am already specialising in dyslexia and specific learning difficulties and looking forward to taking part in the specialist clinics offered here at LFO, such as dry eye and dyslexia clinics.
