Dr. Athena Mears decided to work in optometry because it offered everything she was looking for in a long-term career. Being able to help all different types of people with different conditions makes her job exciting and rewarding. It also allows her to spend time with her friends and family.
She specializes in pediatrics and vision therapy
She likes to hike and be outdoors playing with her dog. She hopes to be able to help any patient that walks into the clinic. She has an older brother who just moved to California and works in medical research, and a younger sister who is about to start her optometric journey at SCO!
Her dad owns a local barbershop, and her mom works for the courthouse. Last, but not least, her 2-year-old hound mix dog. Nellie. She loves to go on adventures with Dr. Mears!
