The Benefits of Dr.’s Office Aquariums

Last week, I took my two-and-a-half-year-old daughter to a children’s eye specialist to schedule a minor surgery. I was perhaps more nervous than she; all she knew was that a doctor was going to fix her eye. I knew she was facing an invasive procedure, and I was facing medical bills.


Everyone who enters a doctor’s waiting room feels some degree of stress and anxiety about what lies ahead. Many doctor’s offices are adorned with flat-screen T.V.s and loud speakers, but reactionary world news streamed from a large television isn’t soothing, and nausea-inducing elevator music wafting from somewhere up above isn’t relaxing. As we walked into the eye specialist’s waiting room last week, however, we were greeted by a smiling receptionist and a lively aquatic world, swirling with beauty and life.




My daughter was as excited as I was relieved, and eagerly pressed her nose against the glass as she bubbled on about blue fish and white fish, black fish and green fish. I pointed out the live coral swishing slowly from side to side as if they didn’t have a care in the world. As we continued to watch, I became as fascinated as she was by the active, wiggling fish and the flurry of activity in their underwater world.
