Jason Woo, Optometrist
Throughout my career as an optometrist, I have had the pleasure of meeting many different people.
After years of working with summer students interested in pursuing optometry as their career, students enrolled in optometry school gaining real-world experience, new graduates learning the ways, or student opticians doing practicums, I realized that I truly enjoy teaching and mentoring others.
My hope is for this website to serve as a useful resource for anyone interested in or actively pursuing a career in optometry or opticianry.
Parisa Zare, Optician
Being an optician out in the real world has taught me that my ultimate goal as a healthcare professional is my client’s happiness.
By happiness, I don’t mean people smiling ear to ear and pulling off a Singing in the Rain routine while leaving the office (although that would be very uplifting!). I mean the gratifying sense of satisfaction that one has, knowing they have been educated and taken good care of.
The Lost Contacts is a place where I share what I learn in my journey as an optician, in hopes of helping someone out there in their journey!
