  On a personal note, Dr. Ha was extremely supportive for me in the process of applying to optometry schools. She helped me prepare for interviews and I felt more confident knowing I had such a great experience interning at the type of practice that I hope to one day start. Her practice is very successful and well-run, with all the staff and interns feeling right at home and being able to convey that to patients. Upon entering SUNY, I was so grateful for my time at Eyecon because I had prior knowledge to how pre-testing is conducted, what some ocular diseases were, what a full comprehensive exam entails, and knowledge of dry eye and myopia control. This was able to serve me well in my Optics, Ocular Disease, and Clinical Optometry courses. In addition, since I interacted a great deal with patients, I was already comfortable working with patients when shadowing and scribing at SUNY. Even after completing Dr. Ha’s internship, she continues to be a mentor for me and supports me by regularly checking in on how I am doing at SUNY. This experience was truly so valuable for my optometric career, and I am so grateful that I was able to intern at Eyecon Optometry.
