As head of Sight and Sound Technology, the largest supplier and distributor of technology and devices designed for visually-impaired and blind individuals, Glenn Tookey wouldn't be disappointed if he went out of business. But until there are cures for all eye diseases, he remains a strong advocate for his customers. OIS Podcast host Rob Rothman, MD, kicked off a lively discussion with Tookey that covers the company's beginnings four decades ago, how he  evaluates new products, and how he plans to bring those products to more patients. Tookey's tech industry career includes stints in telecom, data processing, and even pinball machine repair. In 2008, he saw a mobile phone designed to help people with vision loss. Inspired by the design and the purpose, he later bought Sight and Sound.As CEO, Tookey frequently evaluates new technology from emerging inventors and developers. He also readily advises on product design, market access, and other product launch elements for products that aren't ready for prime time. Too often, he said, innovators fail to address pricing (too expensive), market access (no reimbursement), or usability (too obtrusive or complicated).Moving forward, Tookey plans to stay on top of new technology and widen the company's reach. Connecting patients to products is as much of a challenge in the UK and Ireland as it is in the United States, but he's hoping to change that. Tookey wants to raise awareness with ophthalmologists, occupational therapists, opticians, and teachers to promote referrals and to bring greater independence to the blind and visually impaired. Listen to this podcast to discover: What Tookey sees as the most exciting solutions for creating independence for the visually impaired and the blind.The potential for augmented reality and virtual reality in this space. The reimbursement challenges for visual impairment hardware, software, and services in the UK, Ireland, and the US.The biggest mistake inventors make when developing devices for the visually impaired or blind.Click “play” to listen.

This study, published in the July issue of Retina, is the first to demonstrate a link between the disordersAMD is the leading cause of visual impairment and blindness in people over 65 years old and is the result of damage to the central area of the retina called the macula, which is responsible for reading and driving vision. One major form of early AMD is called drusen, where small yellow cholesterol deposits form in a layer under the retina. They can deprive the retina of blood and oxygen, leading to vision loss. Drusen formation can be slowed by appropriate vitamin supplementation.The other major form of early AMD is the presence of subretinal drusenoid deposits (SDD), which is lesser known and requires high-tech retinal imaging to detect. These deposits are also made of fatty lipids and other materials, but form in a different layer beneath the light-sensitive retina cells, where they are also associated with vision loss. Currently, there is no known treatment for SDD.R Theodore (Ted) Smith MD, Ph.D. is the lead author of this study and joins us in this episode to tell us more.

Why do we have a biological clock?Do you struggle to get up in the morning?Does sleep affect men differently to women?How do you know you are getting enough sleep?Is there a link between sleep disruption and mental health?“Most people don't have a sleeping problem, they have an anxiety problem”Born in Aldershot in 1959, Russell Foster is an award winning professor of circadian neuroscience at Oxford and the director of the Nuffield Laboratory of Ophthalmology. For his discovery of non-rod, non-cone ocular photoreceptors he received numerous awards including the Zoological Society scientific medal. He has written numerous books, his latest being - Life Time: The New Science of the Body Clock, and How It Can Revolutionize Your Sleep and Health.According to Russell, when it comes to sleep one glove does not fit all. The notion that we need “8 hours of sleep per day” to be healthy is nonsense says Russell. There are numerous factors that interplay to create a good nights sleep and each one of us is unique to the other.Russell wants to remove the anxiety associated with sleep and get down to the root of why we sleep the way we do. “To understand if you are getting enough sleep the first thing is to ask yourself are you not feeling able to function optimally during the day? Do you need an alarm clock? Does it take you a long time to get up? Do you feel sluggish? Do you need caffeine? Do you need a nap? On your time off do you oversleep? Are you irritable? It's listening to our bodies! And listening to it carefully as the tired brain can delude itself to think that it's not tired.In this episode Russell breaks down the biological clock and circadian rhythm, why certain people are morning people vs night owls, how waking up in the night isn't necessarily a bad thing, how sleep and mental health are linked, how morning light vs evening light effects us and how different types of work could go against our sleep requirements.He really covers it all and will put you at ease if you consider yourself someone who struggles with sleep.A fascinating episode - Enjoy!Lots of Love,Dave & SteveTo find out more about Russell Foster and his work, check out his latest book Life Time: The New Science of the Body Clock, and How It Can Revolutionize Your Sleep and Health.This episode is sponsored by Vivobarefoot Footwear.

European investment in ophthalmology MedTech is more opportunistic than strategic says Klaus Stockemann, managing partner of Peppermint VenturePartners in Berlin. With fewer venture capitalists focused on the market, they are more receptive to cold calls and impromptu pitches at medical conferences.That's one of the many insights provided when new OIS Podcast host Sophia Pathai, MD, PhD, MPH caught up with three top-tier VCs who focus on ophthalmology devices and technology.After recalling their nonlinear backgrounds, Stockemann;  Diana Saraceni, cofounder of Panakes Ventures (Milan); and Jennifer McMahon, a partner at Seroba VC (Dublin) discussed the activity in the MedTech space as of late. One piece of news that got Western Europe talking: Belgium-based iStar's strategic alliance with AbbVie.What else? The guests agreed that ophthalmology's active, entrepreneurial spirit, the high demand for microtized surgical devices, and the strong M&A market all make for an exciting time to invest in ophthalmology.For those in need of their services, the guests offer a wealth of advice. McMahon recommends that business owner/innovators have a good grasp of their position in the market—not only what's on the market now, but what might be in a few years.Saraceni stresses relevancy: name-dropping does not impress her. Instead, highlight the results you and your executive team have accomplished that relate to your project.Listen to the podcast for more insights, including:How aspiring entrepreneurs and early start-up founders can refine their pitch and approach to ensure the best chance of success.What makes ophthalmology devices an attractive investment area.What's exciting now in the ophthalmology therapeutics and MedTech.The advantages of the ophthalmology community above other therapeutic areas.How the VC role has evolved over the past few years and the speakers' vision moving forward.Their forecasts for the future of ophthalmology MedTech over the next 10 years.[Listen to the Podcast]

Caffeinators, this one is SPECIAL. This is our 100th episode. Thank you so much for the support! OK, we all know a couple of "love it or hate it" areas in veterinary medicine for most of us. Be it anesthesia or surgery, emergency, dentistry, etc; we all have an area we don't particularly love. Another big one is eyeballs. So it's time to talk all things ophthalmology!  Natalie Herring, LVT, VTS(Ophthalmology), recently came by the Vet Tech Cafe to talk about the formation of that VTS academy, her path to working in ophthalmology and a few tips and tricks for doing so, and some of the unique skills required to obtain a VTS in that discipline. We have found through our VTS discussion series that every Academy is unique in several ways, yet follows the same basic blueprint, and we always find it to be a fascinating discussion. Talking all about the path to a VTS in Ophthalmology was no different!
