Joined: 10/22/2007Yesterday I began full-time school to become an certified ophthalmic technician. Really excited about this new career. I have always been fascinated about the eye and how it works and how amazing it is that it does the things it does; now I will get to learn so much more and to help people at the same time. This program is a forty hour a week school with clinical rotations (complete with lab coat and scrubs) at Duke. I am very blessed to have been admitted into the program. Graduates normally have jobs before they leave school.
Perhaps what I learn might help someone on here as it relates to vision and shooting and eye health. I hope as I know more I will be helpful here in a different regard.
Please pray for our family as we try to make it all work for the next year. I will be working part-time as well and time will be in short supply for study, family, and life in general. Short term loss for a better outlook.Mathews S2 / Copper John 4-pin / QAD HD LD / Worlds Best Strings / 808 Bowslings / Easton Bloodlines

Joined: 5/7/2008Good luck Kevin. At this point, I could never in a million years find the gumption to go back to school full time. Studying for my PE exam was hard enough after five years out of school for me, and I told myself it wasn’t going to ever happen again. Good on ya for putting in the hard work for a new career.
You still gonna be working at MACE part time while in school?

Joined: 6/22/2004Awesome, Kev! That is a HUGE change for you. Will the part-time work be at the same shop you are at currently?
You can count on me to pray for you all as you navigate this!

and this is the exact reason i ended up in california. (happy because i met my wife here). CA lets you have a crack at the exam after two years. no way i remember things after four. i searched for a CA job, just because of this.
sorry for the hijack, Mr Student OP!
