Kelly Voltz, OD, FAAO, FSLS, of CooperVision Specialty Eyecare, shares what she wishes she knew before entering optometry.

This transcript has been lightly edited for clarity:

I guess first entering optometry in practice—specifically private practice—I think I would love to have taken away more of the business aspects of optometry.

I think in school we do a really great job learning the disease processes and how to communicate with patients; but understanding really how to grow a business and grow your communities that you're in, I think that would be great.

So if there's any practice management courses, go take those!
