They say the eyes are the windows to one’s soul. But what if you have eye problem? In that case, eye doctors, such as ophthalmologists and optometrists are there to help. This week, our guest professional is Dr. Takeia Locke, a practicing optometrist from Georgia.
As a practicing optometrist, Dr. Takeia has received several citations in the areas of contact lens, school screenings, and pediatrics and vision therapy.
Her passion for optometry began during her tender years. At the age of 16, she could easily envision that becoming an optometrist is the right career for her. She then pursued Health Management at the Howard University on a swimming scholarship. Yes, Dr. Takeia is herself, an athlete.
