Many of you now by now that my dad was an ophthalmologist, so I guess there's a certain place in my heart for eye issues. However, when we talk about skin on the show, we might not think about the connection to our eyes, but a lot of people struggle with eye issues, especially since some medications that are taken to help skin conditions sometimes exacerbate eye issues. Today's guest is an optometrist, Dr. Carly Rose who is an optometrist who received a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Northern Kentucky University before heading off to optometry school in Chicago. She then chose to complete a year-long residency at the Cincinnati VAMC Eye Clinic. Dr. Rose owns a comprehensive primary eye care practice called Eyecare on the Square and a dry eye medspa, Clear Eyes + Aesthetics in Cincinnati OH.  She is a current member of the American Optometric Association, the Ohio Optometric Association, and the American Academy of Optometry.
