New Optometrist at Valley Eyecare Center
Q: How did you end up at Valley Eyecare Center?
A: Honestly, it seemed as if it was just meant to be. I decided to join the civilian workforce after six years in the Army, and this was at the same time that Valley Eyecare Center was looking for a new optometrist to grow the practice. It has been a great fit, and I am very excited to join this team.
Q: Why did you decide to go into optometry?
A: I have always had an interest in optometry as I required glasses from a very young age. I made the decision to pursue a career in optometry while studying Physiology at the University of Arizona. After shadowing optometrists, I knew it was the right path for me.
Q: What services do you provide at Valley Eyecare Center?
A: I can provide full and comprehensive optometry services, including contact lens fitting, pediatric care, and diagnosis and management of ocular diseases.
Q: What is your favorite part of working at Valley Eyecare Center?
A: The staff. I feel very blessed to work with a team of professionals who have great attitudes and are focused on their patients.
Q: What is one piece of advice that you tell all of your patients?
A: Wear sunglasses. There are so many different ocular conditions that are associated with and accelerated by UV exposure, so it is important to make sure that you have a pair of sunglasses handy at all times.
Q: How often should you get an eye exam?
A: I recommend an annual routine eye exam if a person is not experiencing any problems and has no previously documented ocular conditions. Various reasons may necessitate more frequent care, however.
We are happy to have Dr. Baldwin on our team now! To learn more about our practice, or to schedule an eye exam with an optometrist at Valley Eyecare Center, call (602) 955-2700, or visit our website.
