Paraoptometric of the Year

Tricia Buttram, ABO, CPO Named 2022 Paraoptometric of the Year

 Tricia Tricia began her career in optometry in 2019, when shestarted working at Insight Eye Care in Glenpool under Dr. Kyle Tate. That was just three years ago, and since then, her career has taken off like a rocket - propelled by her work ethic, her team spirit, and her passion for always learning more. Tricia received her ABO certification in 2020, but still felt she had knowledge gaps in optometry.

A year later, she solved that problem by getting her CPO certification, and now she hopes to teach her own CE courses in the future. In addition to adding to her knowledge base, Tricia says she loves her job because she loves helping her patients and seeing them smile.

When she isn't at Insight Eye Care, you can find her with her two wonderful children -Blaine and Regan - and her husband Tim, on their cattle ranch.
