In his youth, Dr. Martin was an avid scuba diver and drummer. In fact, he played in the band throughout his teenage years growing up in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, a small town in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains. Initially he intended to become a marine biologist, but visits with optometry students at Northeastern Oklahoma State University steered him toward a long career in eye care. Dr. Martin practiced for several years in Oklahoma before moving to the Texas Panhandle to be closer to his wife’s family. He joined the Broome Optical team in 1997 and has enjoyed the Christian fellowship and family focus of Amarillo ever since. He hopes his enthusiasm for patient care will be carried on by the next generation of optometrists.
