Optometry Podcast: Dr. Will To Shares His Journey on Opening a Private Practice

Chances are that if you’ve been at a conference or an optometry event in the last few years, you’ve had a chance to meet and learn from Dr. Will To. The optometrist behind the aptly named @thetravelingOD account on Instagram has made it his mission in his early career to give back to the profession through speaking and mentoring, wracking up over 100,000 airline miles along the way. A 2016 graduate of Western University College of Optometry, Dr. To sits down with Dr. Darryl Glover to share the real and not-so-picture-perfect reality about his path to private practice ownership. There were times along the way that he readily admits that he thought about giving up – that it would just be easier to work for someone else and collect a paycheck. As the owner of Optical Illusions of San Mateo, Dr. To shares the challenges and lessons he learned to make his dreams of owning a practice a reality on this new podcast.
