Sandbox Story - Interview of Dr. Nikki Iravani

Dr. Nikki Iravani is an OD and a technology entrepreneur. She is founder of the app, Eyexam, and focused it on helping ODs connect with patients. Now she is advancing it to help ODs with Telehealth.

She was born and raised in Iran during a tumultuous time, and shares interesting stories of becoming American. Her family stories, including raising three daughters, are truly inspiring.

Nikki started into optometry by working in an optometry practice, and her mentor story is compelling. She currently serves on the Board of Women in Optometry, from Jobson. After working in industry, she opened a new practice - and experienced a difficult challenge in getting back from a lapsed license.

I’m thrilled to have had a chance to interview Dr. Iravani, and you will be equally pleased to hear her stories.
