I was kind of fortuitous in that I was gonna be a pediatrician. Since I was in the third grade, I was going to be a pediatrician, I knew exactly what I was going to do. In medical school I did a lot of, you know, I did research in pediatrics and I knew my direction. In New Orleans I met an ophthalmologist in a hole in the wall restaurant, and he, with a gleam in his eye, said "have you tried ophthalmology?" And I go "ophthalmology, why would I do ophthalmology, no, you're in a dark room, da da da da, of course not," and then he said "well, you know, just do"... so I did a one month thing, and I fell in love with it, and I changed my mind, I changed directions, and I got into an ophthalmology residency, and ever sicne then I've never looked back, I've been very grateful that I've become an ophthalmologist.
