" It's that reaction from patients when they finally can see clear - it's worth every second of them sitting in my office!" In her free time, Dr. Khadem enjoys running, paddle boarding.
Why did Dr. Khadem decide to become an optometrist? "I was sitting in my optometrist’s office, waiting to be seen. And it was just an 'Aha!' moment for me - that this is a very nice field, and I do like helping people. I’m also very bubbly and social - I like interaction! Also, I have been wearing glasses since I was five or six years old, so that’s one doctor I never minded going to, ever since I was little."
