Student Snapshot: Frank Wang - Optometry

Frank Wang is a senior at Liberty High School and has been studying optometry under the mentorship of Dr. Loan Lao. Frank has had many great experiences with Dr. Lao and has learned a lot about the field. He has learned to use a lensometer, phoropter, and auto refractor. As well, during his mentor visits, Frank shadows Dr. Lao and frequently helps her enter patient information. For his final product, Frank worked with Dr. Lao to create a multipurpose pair of glasses that allow users to quickly change out the lenses. Frank was eventually able to turn his initial glass designs into reality and was able to 3D print a working model. In the end, Frank has enjoyed his time studying optometry under Dr. Lao and has enjoyed his time in the ISM program.
