DR. RUSH TALK
What would you do for a living if you weren’t a doctor?
I’ve wanted to be an optometrist since I was 12 years old. If I wasn’t an optometrist, I think I would be happy being a coach or personal trainer. Helping people get better at something, or guiding them to achieve their goals.
What makes you different from other doctors?
I have experience with scleral contact lenses used for the treatment of advanced corneal diseases like keratoconus and severe dry eyes. As a person who’s struggled with dry eye over my lifetime as well as difficulty finding comfort with contact lenses it gives me a unique perspective when working with patients to accomplish their goals.
