Personal Experience:

In 3rd grade, Dr. Blankenbeker received his first pair of eyeglasses. He was amazed at how much more detailed the world became when he looked through the frames for the very first time. Blades of grass, the veins of fall leaves, and the shimmer of stars all seemed vivid and defined. He remembers with fondness the smile that his childhood Optometrist was able to bring to his face, and now, as an Optometrist himself, he hopes to bring that very same joy and appreciation to his own patients.
