Dr. Schmitt then headed south to the land of barbeque and blues where he graduated Cum Laude from Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, TN in 2011.
Dr. Schmitt is a licensed doctor of optometry and has passed all parts of the national board examinations required for licensure by the State of Indiana.
