Author name: Matt Geller

Founder & Senior Editor of OptometryStudents.com - I created OptometryStudents.com because our profession lacked a positive and proactive voice and this restricted students from being motivated to bring Optometry in the right direction. My duties include all of the team building, graphic design, marketing, event planning, video editing and overall administration for the website. Overall, I am here to do what is right and what is good for optometry. I am currently an optometrist at Complete Family Vision Care in San Diego, California. Find Matt on Google+.
