What was the inspiration behind launching the podcast and the motivation to focus on myopia-related topics?

As a myopia management provider, my passion lies in staying at the forefront of advancements in the field. I love engaging with researchers to uncover the latest findings and discovering how these insights can enhance the quality of care in my practice. In conversations with fellow doctors, I often delve into their treatment approaches and implementation strategies, aiming to “hack” into the core of their success.

Beyond clinical discussions, I find immense value in exploring the industry and understanding the products and services shaping our field. This insight allows me to tailor my treatments more effectively for my patients. Given the wealth of insightful conversations I was already having, it dawned on me that recording and sharing these discussions through a podcast could offer a valuable resource for others. 

The Myopia Podcast was born out of a desire to make these enriching conversations accessible, enabling fellow practitioners to leverage the collective wisdom of our dynamic field.
