When Jason was younger, he always saw himself having a career in healthcare. Later in life, when he was introduced to Optometry, it was “love at first sight” (forgive the pun). After graduating from college he pursued his career by enrolling in the State University of New York College of Optometry. Upon completion of this graduate program, he then took part in a residency training program at the Wilmington VA Medical Center in Delaware. As he gained experience through his schooling, residency, working in various Opticals, and now working for one of the largest practices in NYC, he soon came to realize he wanted to focus on contact lenses. But would it end there? Jason asks himself, “Could I do more to leave a positive impression within my dear profession? What if I could develop an innovative idea that would benefit the industry for years to come?” This is the drive that lead him to developing The Right Contact
