Eye Give a Damn about Diversity & Education with Dr. Parres Wright

From her first eye exam as a sophomore in high school, young Parres was hooked on optometry! Today, Parres Wright, OD, FAAO, is a Professor at Midwestern University – Chicago College of Optometry and CE lecturer with expertise in retina, low vision and DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion). She shares her commonsense approach to how DEI efforts can impact the practice of optometry and the profession as a whole. Most impactful is her sense of empathy and how it allows her to better care for her patients, as she simply states, “I don’t think I’m special, but I take the time to make my patient feel special.”
