“Optometry provides me the ability to care for patients of all ages,” Dr. Kannarr said. “In the course of a day I might treat an eye infection in a 2-year-old and provide low vision aids to a 90-year-old glaucoma patient. The diversity allows me to care for the whole community, and I hope to improve the lives of a wide variety of people.”
