    Hello! Im really glad I found this forum!
    Im a pre-nursing student and am interested in becoming an ophthalmic nurse in the US. Ive been researching online and it seems that ophthalmic nurses don't get paid as well as nurses in other specialities. I really hope this isn't true for everyone Ophthalmic nursing sounds so interesting and I would love to be one!
