Before COVID-19 changed the landscape for the optometry school experience, we caught up with Dr. Jessica Vickery about her decision to pursue a contact lens residency at MidAtlantic Cornea Consultants. On this podcast, we talk about the state of contact lens education in optometry school, and what students considering pursuing residency need to know before they start the process. From applications to interviews, Dr. Vickery shares her personal experience and how she made the decision about which residency opportunity was the best fit for her. Since recording this episode, Dr. Vickery has gone on to be honored with the Bernard Blaustein Resident of the Year Award for the Residency Class of 2020. Congrats Dr. Vickery!
