Optometry is a branch of medicine which involves examining the eyes and applicable visual systems for defects or abnormalities as well as the medical diagnosis and management of eye disease. Traditionally, the field of optometry began with the primary focus of correcting refractive error through the use of spectacles. Modern day optometry, however, has evolved through time so that the education curriculum additionally includes intensive medical training in the diagnosis and management of ocular disease in countries where the profession is established and regulated.

Every person in our world today finds something that they truly enjoy doing or observing. For me, that is my eyes. The colors, their motions, how they work, everything about the eye is fascinating. Have you ever truly considered what life would be like if we didn't have the sense of sight?! Many blind people have admitted, once receiving surgery to provide them with vision, that they prefer to be blind. In all honesty, I have only one reason to adore my eyes and vision; that reason is only because those were almost taken away from me, but I found an excellent doctor that basically saved my vision in my right eye. Granted, I cannot see very well out of it because of what happened, but it has helped me in deciding what to do with my life.
