Mark Miriello, OD, talks to Michael Cooper, OD, about why he became interested in optometry. He says that he had always considered a career in health care, but it was not until shadowing his optometrist that he decided to pursue a career in eye care. Dr. Miriello found it fascinating that a patient’s eye can be an early clue for diagnosing systemic diseases such as diabetes. He also explains the educational benefits of attending meetings and how it reinforces the importance of relationships with fellow optometrists.
