Lasers, Injections, and a Little Bit of Blood: Oh M(eye)!
Warning: Some of the images below are graphic and viewer discretion is advised. Images consist of ocular injections and laser procedures.
What do third years do in lab now that we are all pros at clinical exams? We practice all types of injections on each other and try out different lasers (not on each other). Lets just say, labs during the last quarter of third year are not for the faint of heart, especially for those afraid of needles.
Optometrists being able to perform lasers and injections depends on the state or providence you live in. I think after this quarter, with a little practice, we could become proficient enough that our patients would trust and believe in us.
