Tower Clock Eye Center hosts Medical College of Wisconsin students

Tower Clock Eye Center welcomed nearly 20 medical students from the Medical College of Wisconsin for an afternoon of instruction yesterday. Karl Schwiesow, MD; Tyson Schwiesow, MD; Kurt Schwiesow, MD; and Matt Thompson, MD, each taught small groups of students how to perform a battery of basic eye exams.
“The goal of the college’s Bench-to-Bedside program is for us to provide these students a hands-on experience in fundamental eye exam techniques,” said Dr. Tyson Schwiesow. “This approach has many advantages, including that we provide immediate feedback to students as they perform each test.”
The groups were stationed in several of the clinic’s exam rooms and used the equipment in a mock exam setting. Each student had a pupil dilated and exams were performed on their fellow students.
“We’re proud that Tower Clock Eye Center can play a part in helping the next generation of doctors achieve their goals,” added Schwiesow.
