Four Eyes Optometry Podcast
The Four Eyes Optometry Podcast was created by four female new grad optometrists. We discuss the ups and downs of experiencing the optometry life, emphasizing clinical management tips, eye care products, and optometry related news from the perspective of new grad optometrists. We provide in depth interviews with influential optometrists, ophthalmologists, and other eye care professionals who contribute positively to the profession and their communities. Our goal in each episode is to provide clinical information that is relevant and useful for optometrists working in both Canada and the U.S.
