    Don’t practice what I preach

    Many clinicians advise their children against becoming physicians


    Does this apply to ophthalmologists?

    I returned to my original question, “Why are doctors discouraging their children from becoming physicians?”

    While these ophthalmologists understand the universal sentiments as described above for physicians in general, they both stated the fulfillment of being an ophthalmologist far outweighed any of these other frustrations.

    They agreed wholeheartedly that, if given the choice, they would “do it all again.” These two ophthalmologists across two continents would be thrilled if their children were to become ophthalmologists.

    The unique satisfaction and intangible fulfillment we derive from our field stand in contrast to the frustrations felt by our general medical colleagues.
