EMG Hosts Optometry Students

Will and Sheridon Gove are optometry students from Pennsylvania College of Optometry at Salus University who both recently passed their boards and are finishing up their clinical rotations before graduation. They recently completed a 12 week rotation here at EMG.

Will and Sheridon both got their undergraduate degrees from the University of Maine. They were married in 2008 and went to optometry school in Pennsylvania together.  Their first rotation was at Groton Navy Base in Connecticut, a hospital site where they were doing basic primary eye care. They came to Eyecare Medical Group for their next 12 week rotation, where they spent time with all of our eye doctors, seeing each of the different subspecialties that we deal with at EMG, including retina, glaucoma, and cornea. They got to go into the OR with our physicians and see surgeries and were involved in working up patients.

Will and Sheridon are currently in Colorado for their last 12 week rotation, which is in contact lenses prescribing, use, and training, before they graduate from Pennsylvania College of Optometry on May 20th and begin working for Maine Optometry in Freeport, where Sheridon’s father, Dr. Littlefield, is a Maine optometrist.

Good luck to you both, Will and Sheridon; we miss having you around!
