Dr. France comments on becoming an ophthalmologist:

“With all of the intrinsic rewards of being a physician, it had always been difficult for me to decide on a passion to which I should dedicate my career. That is, until I was exposed to the field of ophthalmology. As ophthalmologists, we are afforded the incredible challenge and privilege to care for our patients’ highly-valued ocular health and vision. What ultimately made ophthalmology the obvious choice for me was the excitement that comes with intraocular microsurgery while striking the perfect balance between medicine and surgery in such an incredibly rewarding way. Being a part of a team that shares such values and excitement only enhances that reward!”
