As a Technician at the Indiana Eye Clinic, Christy Wampler assists doctors and patients in every way imaginable. This includes processing patients, writing prescriptions for the physicians to sign, pre-operative measurements and calculations, ordering drugs and other medical materials, and running all sorts of vision tests.
Although she has always worked in ophthalmology, Christy began her stint at IEC six years ago working the front desk as a patient representative. Though she enjoyed the position, she found herself interested in the delivery side of healthcare.
“After about a year, I wanted to learn more of the medical side of it, so I asked if I could become a tech. I have since chosen to learn as much as I can about every aspect of my career — and keep wanting to learn more,” she said.
She’s stayed at IEC because of the family atmosphere, both in how employees relate to each other and how they treat patients. Christy is passionate about helping people overcome poor eyesight and achieving a higher quality of life.
“My favorite part of my job is being able to watch a patient who comes in with poor vision due to cataracts have surgery and then be able to see and have a quality of life after surgery. It’s why I do what I do every day,” she said.
Christy and her husband have three daughters they adore.
