Smooth Hands D’Aversa is Ready to Buzz In

Meet SUNY College of Optometry’s OSB contestant, Jerry D’Aversa ’18 from Garden City, NY.

This rock star loves shredding the guitar at the 18197525_10209705986750687_949326859_nHard Rock Times Square when he’s not busy studying optometry. Not only is he an actual rock star, he’s a rock star in clinic too! His classmates coined him the name “Smooth hands D’Aversa” for his 10/10 gonioscopy skills.

Groomed at a young age for the world of eye care, he hopes to treat the great people of New York while still having time to travel the world.

Maybe Jerry will play some tunes for us at the OSB. Come out and support him!
