Dr. Matsunami Meets Lieutenant Governor Habib

Dr. Matsunami recently attended the Optometric Physicians of Washington’s Day in Olympia event, where he – along with other leaders in the OPW –  was able to meet with Lt. Governor Habib.  Mr. Habib takes special interest in eye care due to being blind in both eyes since age 7.  His blindness was brought on due to retinoblastoma, which is a cancer of the eye that occurs most commonly in infancy to early childhood.
