Optoturban Podcast: Homosexuality and Optometry


Cody Frank joined the Optoturban podcast today to share his unique experiences as a homosexual optometrist. He is a 4th-year student at Midwestern University. He was born and raised in a conservative community in Maine.

How is it seeing patients?

At first, Cody avoided the topic of sexuality around his patients but as he had more and more conversations about his personal life, his answers began to evolve. He realized that, in spite of their own views, his patients appreciated his honesty and openness. 

What he learned

Cody learned, “Being open and honest about who I am lets me […] be 100% myself”
