Las Vegas-Dr. Dori Carlson, OD, FAAO, and Dr. April Jasper, OD, FAAO, recently sat down with Optometry Times to talk about their recent presentation at Vision Expo West in Las Vegas on the female perspective in primary care optometry. While both male and female optometrists practice optometry in similar ways, they say, their female perspective has given them a slightly different approach to treating and relating to certain patients. Dr. Jasper shares the story of relating to a soon-to-be mother who was losing her vision and just wanted to see her baby, while Dr. Carlson talks about keeping concerns like contaminating eye makeup in mind.
