Welcome to our new website!


Whether you are an optometrist by accident or by choice, this podcast channel is meant for you. Hi! I am Ukti Vora, an Indian optometrist who bumped into this wonderful profession by accident and fell in love with it. My struggle from India to the USA inspired me to start this podcast channel for all the optometry enthusiasts out there. This podcast series is a one stop shop for students, fresh graduates and experienced eye care professionals who want to explore new opportunities. It has a group of speakers who share their real life experiences and important takeaway messages that will help you better understand the opportunities in the eye care profession around the world. I am happy to invite you to my nerdy journey in the world of Optometry.
