Get to know Dr. Amy Harper, O.D.

When did you know that you wanted to be an optometrist

I have known since third grade when I received my first pair of glasses. The instant gratification of helping patients improve their vision reminds me how dramatically seeing clearly changed my life.  I still love watching a child’s face as they see details they have missed before.

Favorite part of being an optometrist

I love the intimate ways I get to know my patients, what is going on in their lives and families.  I love living with a sense of community- everyone helping one another using their own gifts and talents. Life changes if you can’t see and helping preserve vision is incredibly rewarding for me!

Favorite vacation

I love the beach!  Hearing the surf instantly lowers my blood pressure, and it’s the place where I feel closest to God.  Really anywhere with my family is fine with me!

Favorite concert you’ve been to

I enjoy listening to Christian music, so most recent concerts have included Natalie Grant, New Song, And Mark Shultz

Do you have any pets?

We had the best dog, “Pickle”, a Boston Terrier who was named after me!

Fun fact

On a middle school field trip, we visited a Pizza Inn buffet, and I was challenged to a pizza eating contest; I smoked my competition finishing 24 pieces of pizza.
