Sometimes access to vision care and glasses is not the primary issue that stands in the way of everyone having an equal opportunity for good vision. In many cultures, stigmas stand in the way of correction and prevent people from wearing a pair of eyeglasses to see, work, learn, and even drive better.
Kristan Gross, VII’s Global Executive Director and Andrea Kirsten-Coleman, Global Communications Manager, recently discussed the topic of stigmas on the latest episode of the Nerdy Optometrist podcast.
Hosted by Ukti Vora, a California-based optometrist, the podcast is a one-stop shop for students, fresh graduates and experienced eye care professionals who want to better understand the opportunities in the eye care profession around the world. Listen here:
