Video audio transcription:
I’m Liza Stremick, I am the eye doctor at Eyes On Burdick. I was born and raised in Minot, completed my undergrad at NDSU and then went on to get my doctorate in optometry down in Arizona. I decided to go to school to be an eye doctor because I got glasses at a young age and I loved going to the eye doctor, I loved getting new glasses.

So, started optometry school and that’s when I really became passionate about vision therapy and helping people reach their maximum potential visually. So, led me to a residency and led me back home. Eye exams are really important because we think that is the classic one, too, get the best glasses prescription, which is important for your day to day life but there are a lot of other things that we look at.
So we make sure that your eyes are nice and healthy, look for any signs of Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration, Dry Eye, but also some certain systemic conditions can show up in your eyes.

So early signs of diabetes, high blood pressure, even cancer so it’s important to have that yearly eye exam and just make sure your eyes are healthy, as well as getting that glasses prescription updated.
Now I’m excited to be back in Minot, my hometown, opening Eyes On Burdick and offering these specialties in the area.
