Your Precious Sight: An Optometrist’s Most Memorable Cases by Eichin Chang-Lim, O.D. details the many cases she’s had in over thirty years of practice. After her father woke up with vision loss in one eye, Dr. Chang-Lim would eventually grow up to become an optometrist and open a thriving practice in California. Each chapter is dedicated to a different ailment, starting from how each patient came to her attention, as well as what happened after they followed her prescription. At the end of each chapter, Dr. Chang-Lim shares a short paragraph detailing each condition further along with tips on how to properly care for contacts and other aspects of ocular health. Dr. Chang-Lim invites the reader on a journey through various parts of the medical field in a way that informs and empowers the reader.
As I was reading Your Precious Sight: An Optometrist’s Most Memorable Cases, I could really gain an understanding of the importance of eye health and how it is something that we should not take for granted. Chang-Lim’s main focus is on ocular health and maintenance but it is her storytelling and easy to understand turn of phrase that really does the most to enhance each chapter and bring moments to life. In Your Precious Sight: An Optometrist’s Most Memorable Cases, Eichin Chang-Lim creates a simple collection that is sure to sit with the reader long after the last page is turned. I enjoyed every chapter and feel that Your Precious Sight would be a great book for readers of any age.
