Business with Purpose Podcast with Molly Stillman EP 84: Dr. Travis Zigler, Eye Love

Dr. Travis Zigler, the founder of Eye Love, an eye wellness company with a mission to end preventable blindness. Along with his wife, Jenna, they continue to work part time in optometry and build Eye Love with the goal of eventually opening free clinics in the US and abroad. This was an INCREDIBLE conversation and I can’t wait for you to hear it!

Eye Love’s long-term mission/vision

A portion of profits from Eye Love sales is donated to the Eye Love Cares Foundation and funds are then used to provide glasses, sunglasses, and eye exams for those who cannot afford to obtain proper eye care. In the future, the Foundation will be used to fund permanent free and low cost clinics in both the US and Jamaica, and it is our goal to also provide optometry scholarships for students who have an interest in eye care mission work.

Top 5 Questions Asked To Optometrists

Top 5 questions asked to optometrist

Eye doctors and specialists are asked many questions, but some are asked more than others. Whenever you see any doctor, it is always a good idea to write down questions before the appointment and take them with you. Doctors can direct your health care, but ultimately you are the one responsible for it. Taking your questions also allows you to either get permission to record the discussion or to take notes for later reference. Since an appointment can be stressful for many, this allows you to cover all the bases without having to remember the questions or the answers. So what are the common questions asked of us regularly?

How often should I have eye exams?

Eye exams are recommended every year if you wear glasses or contacts or are over age 61. If you are not having vision problems and are 18 to 60, then you can go every two years. If you find that you are having eye issues, it is always wise to make an appointment with your optometrist. Between the ages of 40 and 60, even if there are no eye problems you know about, you should start having regular eye exams every year. Your eye health is important; don’t take chances with your vision.

What should I bring with me to my eye exam?

Your eye specialist will need to have a list of any prescription medicines and dosages you are taking, as well as any vitamins and supplements. If you have it, a copy of your latest eye prescription, and your current glasses or contacts. This helps your doctor have an approximate reference as to where your vision is if you have never seen them before.

Also take your questions you’ve prepared in advance, and it might also be helpful to have a friend or family member with you if you plan on getting new glasses, or if your eyes are going to be dilated — they can drive you home after the exam.

What is the difference between nearsightedness and farsightedness?

When things are blurry in the distance, that is called nearsightedness or myopia. When you have a hard time seeing things close up, then it is farsightedness. Farsightedness is common as we age and many people will become more farsighted with age. Also, you may find it harder to focus on fine print when reading. As you hit your 40s, people begin to have problems with presbyopia — having trouble with distances and with focusing on fine details such as reading.

What are cataracts?

Cataracts are a clouding of the lens which affects vision. Most cataracts are associated with age. Cataracts can occur in either one eye or both eyes. As the condition progresses, vision becomes cloudy. One of the main treatments is outpatient surgery where the surgeon removes the cataract(s). The surgery doesn’t usually take long, but will take a minimum of a few days to heal in most cases.

When does my contact lens prescription expire?

Contact lens prescriptions will state when they expire, but the general rule is usually within a year. It can vary from state to state and some expire sooner, while some may be good for up to two years. If your prescription has expired, you will not be able to purchase more contacts or a new pair of lenses until the prescription is updated. Make sure to get in for regular eye exams!


One Love,
