THE BACKSTORY

GETTING INVOLVED AMY BOYER, O.D.

Amy Boyer, O.D.

Amy Boyer, O.D., is an independent optometrist with Walmart and has been a leaseholder at the Reynoldsburg, OH, location for over 10 years. “I have always been in corporate optometry,” says Dr. Boyer, “since graduating from the New England College of Optometry.”

1 FAMILY.

“When my kids were small, I enjoyed the flexibility multiple corporate venues had to offer! I think all eye doc moms are actually SuperMoms with invisible capes.”

2 STAFF.

“Ohio is a one-door, licensed state, so I work with a dedicated, knowledgeable optical staff. We always accommodate walk-ins, same-day services, and take time to educate.”

3 ADVOCACY.

“I am on the Energeyes (American Association of Corporate Optometrists) Board and Walmart’s Optometric Advisory Board. Walmart is deeply invested in both its optometrists and vision advocacy. I tell everyone, ‘Get involved!’”

4 YOUTH.

“For high school and college kids choosing a career path, I ask, ‘What about optometry?’ I encourage them to come shadow me for a day and show them the ways we improve lives with better vision.” COT!
