Hi, readers! It's been a while since I posted last so I figured I would update y'all on life as a third year. As I mentioned in my previous post, third year is very different from first and second year since so much of our time is devoted to working with patients in clinic (three days a week from 10:00 to 6:30ish, to be exact). It's exciting, busy, fun, and can be a little intimidating at times. Sometimes I leave clinic at the end of the day feeling ready to take on the world of optometry - and some days I leave feeling like I need to go review everything I've learned in my first 3 years. Every day is different because every patient case is different, and that's what makes optometry (and healthcare in general) such an exciting career to be a part of. :)
