The MOD Pod

The MOD Pod is a podcast by the new medical trade publication Modern Optometry (MOD for short), which was created for optometrists looking to embrace the medical model and practice at the top of their license. MOD has a strong concentration on the medical model of practice, while also covering contact lenses, dry eye, myopia management, and more. It also features Collaborative Eye content within its pages (think surgery and OD-MD relations), so it’s different than anything currently out there. Each episode of The MOD Pod offers a selection of articles from each issue in audio form—so you can stay current on important topics without having to lift a finger to turn a page.
