And nothing is as satisfying this special story:

My favorite patient story was when I saw the wife of a young man that I took care of since he was a little boy. This was her first visit with me. She had noticed a decrease in her vision and thought that she just needed a new eyeglass prescription. She attributed her headaches and vomiting to her pregnancy. But after examining her, I found that she had pseudo tumor cerebri, a condition where the pressure was increasing around her brain. The condition can be associated with pregnancy. I made arrangements for her to go immediately to the ER at OSU, and was able to get a neuro-ophthalmologist to handle her case. She was able to have a shunt placed in her brain to relieve the pressure that was going to blind her, and at the same time this procedure did not harm her baby. A year later, she brought in her beautiful little girl to visit me and said “Thank you so much !”

Dr. Flood is very involved in the community and enjoys helping others. She was extremely involved with Healing Art Missions, ” I started an eye clinic in Haiti that gives ongoing eye care to a rural community of 10,000 people, for the past 18 years.

Optometry is still a very patient-oriented health care profession and he enjoys that. Dr. Millyard shares this story:

One patient story that springs to mind was a patient who had a few small retinal bleeds and other minor symptoms, but enough to warrant further evaluation. The patient had a complete blockage of a portion of their carotid artery and began medical treatment to reduce stroke risk. Reaffirms in my mind the importance of my own annual dilated retinal exams, as well as for my patients.
