For all the Low Vision enthusiast out there, this podcast is meant for you.
Dr. Arathy Kartha started her journey in optometry in 1998 at Sankara Nethralaya and then moved to Queensland University of Technology, Australia where she pursed her PhD focusing on Low Vision. With life taking its own twists & turns, she moved to USA and had to restart her career.

With constant persistence, patience and aim to work only at the best universities, she is currently pursuing her Post Doctoral Research Fellowship from Wilmer Eye Institute, Johns Hopkins Medicine.

In this candid conversation she shares some amazing life lessons about her optometry journey, her role in initiating "Elite School of optometry International Vision Science and optometry Conference" (EIVOC) and her research in Low vision using Virtual Reality.

Being a mother of two, she talks about the importance of work life balance and shares some amazing take away messages for all.
