Hello. I am a pharmacy university graduate from my home country and want to pursue Optometry in Canada.

I am looking for someone who is in the process or hav...

Hi, I am an upcoming high school junior. I am currently very interested in optometry, but after reading things online, I am beginning to have doubts. At the same time, I feel that as a high school junior, these doubts shouldn't come into play quite yet.

For instance, if I enrolled in Berkeley for my four years undergraduate degree, would it p...

I'd be looking to work somewhere in South Carolina/Georgia/Florida/North Carolina (pretty much anywhere in the south)-- So does anyone working here have any suggestions?Thanks for any responses!
