Why live in Lubbock? Dr. Anderson has often said, “I’m from Odessa, and every Odessa kid’s dream is to grow up and live in the big city of Lubbock. And I made it! But seriously, there’s no better place than Lubbock, and I’ve been all over this state. I’ve even lived in New York City, and there’s no better place to raise a family than in Lubbock, Texas.”
Why choose to be a cataract surgeon? In medical school, Dr. Anderson was a attracted to surgery. But the term “surgical precision” didn’t seem to match his experiences in plastic surgery or general surgery. Then he observed a cataract surgery in the operation room performed by a Texas Tech ophthalmologist. That was real surgical precision. Dr. Anderson remembers about cataract surgery, “I immediately said, ‘I want to do that!’ and I’m blessed that I get to do that every day!”
