In this podcast, Denise Balch is joined by Dr. Amanda Olsen, an Optometrist with South East Eyecare Ltd. in Estevan (south east of Regina) and Carnduff, Saskatchewan. Dr. Olsen is also the immediate past president of the Rotary Club of Estevan, as well as Director for the Saskatchewan Association of Optometrists and the Optometry Examining Board of Canada.
Dr. Olsen speaks about the most common eye diseases experienced by patients and the impact these diseases have on their personal and working lives, including their mental health and activities of daily living. She also shares how filling in some of the basic gaps in care can reduce the impact of these diseases.
