When asked about her passion with optometry, Dr. Olma stated, “Optometry gives us the unique opportunity to make a positive impact on an individual’s life.” She appreciates the ability to treat a condition early on that may help a patient better enjoy all aspects of their life. This is especially the case for her pediatric patients that are oftentimes not aware that how they see is irregular. She prides herself on identifying those pediatric patients that may be able to pass screenings, but will still experience difficulties during their formative years. She feels that if she can decrease any potential hurdles in their lives that will allow them more opportunities and success.
