Why does Dr. Schauer love being an optometrist?
Video audio transcription:
“I’m Dr. Brittany Schauer at Vision Source Mandan and being an optometrist allows me to help people, not only with their eyes, but with their overall health. I recall one patient that came in for her yearly eye exam and I detected a problem inside her eyes with the optic nerves. It turned out that she had increased pressure in her brain that required urgent medical treatment. Yes, I love helping people with their vision with glasses and contacts but I also have the opportunity to possibly change someone’s life. And that’s why I love being an optometrist.”
