Optoturban Podcast: Defocus Media Welcomes Student Doctor, Jasdeep Singh Soni

On the first Optoturban podcast, Dr. Darryl Glover and Dr. Jennifer Lyerly caught up with student doctor Jasdeep Singh Soni from Midwestern University (Arizona College of Optometry – AZCOPT). He discusses his decision to attend optometry school, his experience with 4th-year rotations, and his desire to pursue both clinical and business roles after graduation. 


During his time at the University of California – Irvine, Jasdeep majored in Public Health and spent two years as President of the Sikh Student Association. His classes cultivated his interest in healthcare while his extracurriculars developed his enthusiasm for marketing and sales. After honing his skills as an Account Executive at Konica Minolta, he decided to attend Optometry school and combine his two passions into one career. 


With a relatively small cohort and a faculty committed to one-on-one mentorship, AZCOPT gave Jasdeep the opportunity to develop close relationships with individuals from a wide variety of cultural and religious backgrounds. 

Clinical Experiences

As a turban-wearing Sikh, Jasdeep faces a number of unique challenges in clinical settings. In this episode, he addresses positive and negative stereotypes and expounds his techniques for improved patient interaction.  

Post-Rotations Internship

Jasdeep is currently a marketing intern at Cool Springs EyeCare in Tennessee. He helps the private practice acquire new patients through social media engagement.
