I have been getting my eyes checked through the university for over 30 years. Ever since it was at the university on the second for. I have a a zillion students check my eyes and understand there are some 3 and 4 year students. In that time I have had a wide range of how well each student did in my opinion of course. All of them have been ready to work on patients and knew the routine and what to do. Unfortunately during my last visit the readiness to work on patients was not there. The student was friendly, good with conversation but definitely did not have enough training to run through things by himself. I think you should help him out so he will be successful in the future.
