Both are given by the same person. I had a look at their YouTube channel and there was a lot of anti-optometry, anti-glasses content, and “endmyopia” content.
I decided not to engage with this person, but I’m thinking about creating content in the future around this topic.
As an optometrist, my ego is hurt by the blatant devaluing of the profession. But taking a step back, the fault shouldn’t be placed on the individual. The fault lies in the distrust of optometry. This is largely due to how optometry is set up.
Money is made by selling glasses. Businesses survive and thrive by making more money. Hence selling glasses is the optimal approach in the business of optometry. Even if the patient does not need them, which leads to situations that involve mistrust.
Maybe, this will be a video in the future? What do you think? For now, I’ve published a video about burnout in optometry.
Feel free to share this or any content with anyone who you would think will benefit. Thanks for reading and talk soon.
