The video promotes the Doctor of Optometry degree and the optometric profession. It shows students, professors and Doctors of Optometry talking about what students learn and what they can expect from the profession once they graduate, as well as demonstrates the caring aspects of the profession and the more high tech aspects of optometry.
“The video reinforces what many optometrists already know,” says Dr. Jennifer Smythe, ASCO President and Dean of the Pacific University College of Optometry. “Doctors of optometry have unlimited career opportunities, great success at achieving work/life balance and are primary health care providers that make a real difference. We also have the privilege of having a positive impact on the ability of an individual to succeed and be happy in live by improving vision and eye health.”
