David Redman, O.D., is committed to the profession of optometry.

“Since we are a legislated profession, ECPs can get involved in the political process outside of their practice by simply attending a political fundraiser, participating in a health or vision fair for a legislator, or just by contributing to their local, state, or national optometric PAC,” says Dr. Redman, a partner in Precision Eyecare Centers in San Jose and Mountain View, CA.

His dedication to eye health hasn’t gone unnoticed—he was just awarded the American Optometric Association’s Optometrist of the Year at Optometry’s Meeting 2018 in Denver.

Here, Dr. Redman shares his mantras for finding success.
