Dr. James Francois graduated from the Illinois College of Optometry in Chicago in 1996. He practiced in his home state of Wisconsin for seven years before making the move to Phoenix in 2003. Dr. Francois always had a love for math and science but his interest in optometry began in college after seeing a vision therapist to help with eye strain experienced with the extensive hours of reading and studying. Dr. Francois is also very physically active. Although he doesn't spend much time playing all the sports he did in his youth he still finds plenty of time to lift weights and go on daily walks with his family.
