High school internship/jobs in optometry?
I'm a high school junior interested in studying optometry in the (quite far) future and I was thinking about getting an internship or a job (paid or unpaid, either works) during the summer. I am 16 years old, 17 in October.
Do optometrists offer this, or do you mainly have to be in college already? And if they would let me, what would I do and how would I go about asking or finding them? I want to see if I would at least like the field before I begin college so I have a focus.
Thanks in advance for any input!
