She then attended Western University College of Optometry to receive her doctoral degree in Optometry. Dr. Baghoumian's training includes various externship sites in Southern California seeing patients of all age groups. In these externships, she gained experience in comprehensive eye care including treating and managing ocular disease, prescribing spectacles, soft and hard contacts lenses as well as specialty contact lenses for Keratoconus and corneal transplant patients. In addition, she has co- managed patients for refractive surgery and cataract extraction.
She has participated in various mission trips, including a trip to Haiti with International Service Club and a trip to San Carlos, Mexico with VOSH (Volunteer Optometrist in Service to Humanity).

Many of which simply required spectacles to improve their vision, while others required additional care, including various infections and glaucoma treatments.
