Todd M. Watanabe, MD
"Fun and games. Those are the two words that most accurately describe my typical day in the clinic. Each day, I play with toys, watch movies, and interact with children.
During ‘playtime,’ I am able to collect valuable information to diagnose and treat eye diseases. It gives me great personal satisfaction knowing that I can make a lifelong difference in how a child sees. I often reflect on how lucky I am to be able to do what I do – preserving and saving vision while having fun and playing games. Could there be a better job?"
