You are probably looking at your massive student loans right now, thinking to yourself, “How the heck did I take this much out? This is the price of a freaking house”. The sad reality is that the average optometry student take out a whooping average of $200,000 for optometry school and will likely be in debt for the next 20 years.


The United state student debt crisis exceeds $1.3 trillion for 2018 and has been an epidemic in society, shunting the growth of many young professionals. This forces new and talented doctors to live at home with their parents because they cannot to afford to pay rent or begin to think about buying a house. This in turns, delays this young generation in starting a family simply because they can’t barely take care of themselves.

It is okay. Take a deep breath. Relax. I know it feels overwhelming at times but we are going to help you through this. We are going to walk you the step needed in tackling with your student loans.
