Dr. Howells was just about in the 9th grade when he saw his eye doctor for an eye exam. While there he interviewed his optometrist to fulfill a requirement for a Boy Scout merit badge. After that interview, Dr. Howells told his father that he would like to become an optometrist. In 2006 Dr. Howells’ dream came true.
