Dr. Joe Borden, O.D. is an optometrist and owner of Avenue Vision in downtown Golden, CO. On this week’s show, he and Jon sit down in Joe’s office and tackle the truly important issues like those squiggly lines in your eye, how moving it is for an optometrist watching the movie Major League when Lou discovers Wild Thing isn’t realizing his full potential because he needs glasses, and the gnarliest thing he’s ever seen (Hint: It has to do with STDs).
All kidding aside, Joe shares the touching story of why he became motivated to be an optometrist, how Avenue Vision’s holistic and comprehensive approach sets his practice apart, the charity work he does all over the globe, and how best to take care of and enhance your eye health. It’s a wildly informative episode, and you don’t want to skip this one. Do it for your eyes! And do it via your ears!
