This is episode number 50! Thank you all for your support on the podcast journey so far. It has been a privilege to bring you 50 guests since starting mid-2015. In this episode we dig deep into an often overlooked topic, an area most of us take for granted, which is our eyes.
Our guest has been a top-practising optometrist for over 3 decades, and is one of Australia’s most experienced eye doctors. Currently an Adjunct Senior Lecturer at the University of New South Wales, he has also lectured internationally on advanced contact lens fitting, dry eye treatment and computer vision syndrome.
He was one of Australia's first optometrists to be qualified in Ocular Therapeutics and is currently an active member of The International Society of Contact Lens Specialists, The American Academy of Optometry and Optometry Australia to name a few. He also runs a very popular practice in Sydney’s CBD on Market Street called The Eye Practice.
Some of the topics we spoke about include:
- How to manage the increasing epidemic of dry eyes, especially with our heavy use of digital tech
- The importance of meibomian glands, and Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (something I personally suffer from – you’ll hear about that in detail)
- The misconception and dangerous overuse of eye drop products
- And how to overcome blue light damage and eye strain (a big one for designers and anyone using a computer daily!)
If you’ve ever been interested in eye health and what to do to take care of our precious eyes, this is for you.
I present to you … the knowledgeable, easy-going and super dedicated... Dr Jim Kokkinakis!
