SP student picks up Opticianry after seeing grandparents' conditions

01 Nov 2018

Article featured SP optometry student, Tan Li Min, who shared that she was inspired by her grandparents' experiences with poor eyesight to pursue optometry. The 21-year-old took up the Nitec in Opticianry at the Institute of Education (ITE) before pursuing a Diploma in Optometry at SP. Li Min was among student optometrists from SP who recently conducted free screenings for 80 elderly beneficiaries with common eye conditions such as refractive error, cataract and glaucoma. She was also given her first white coat at SP's inaugural White Coat ceremony on Oct 12. Mr Dylan Eng, course chair of SP's Diploma in Optometry, shared that the White Coat Ceremony is a meaningful occasion for students to pledge their commitment to serving patients with professionalism and quality care in the SP Optometry Centre, the community, and in their future careers. He hopes to see them grow in their roles as eye care professionals with a heart. [The New Paper, online]
