What is a cellphone or computer shortcut or function that you found out about and made you think, why didn’t someone tell me earlier!
  • That I don’t have to unlock my phone to get to the camera and take photos or video! — Cynthia Sayers, OD, EyeShop Optical Center, Lewis Center, OH
  • Shopify. — Robert Hillman, Hillman9, Waltham, MA
  • Control + makes letters bigger. — Adam Ramsey, OD, Socialite Vision, Palm Beach Gardens, FL
  • Windows + L to lock your screen while you are on the floor … Where has this been all my life!? — Colby Spivey, Vision Center South, Dothan, AL
  • Keyboard shortcuts are a necessity! — Carissa Dunphy, OD, Monroe Vision Clinic, Monroe, WA
  • Control Z so I can undo what I just did! It saves my skin a lot! — Star Taylor, Richens Eye Center, St George, UT
  • The snipping tool. It makes printing certain pieces of text so much easier!! — Ann-Marie Weaver, Optimal Eye Care, Lewis Center, OH
