When we ask Dr. Surkamp- Why Optometry? – “I was originally led to it through the insight of some really great mentors. It also gives me the opportunity to help people in a very different way. A lot of people don’t appreciate how precious vision is until they start to have issues with it. Helping people achieve their best vision possible is extremely rewarding. The ability to meet and interact with such a broad spectrum of people daily always makes for a meaningful day.”
