S3E7 Alopecia & Eye Health with Dr. Hale Alopecia Life

    • Self-Improvement

Today's guest is Dr. Britney Hale Koehler (known as Dr. Hale). She is a residency trained optometrist and fellow of the American Academy of Optometry. As the spouse of an Army optometrist, she has practiced in Florida, Texas, Washington state and Hawaii over the past 8 years. Her connection to the alopecia community began 6 years ago when she was diagnosed with alopecia areata, resulting in an ongoing and challenging journey of hair loss and regrowth. We are talking about eye health and alopecia today. The loss of our brows and lashes play an important role in eye health, and Dr. Hale is giving us ideas on how we can help improve our own eye health now and for the future. 


Thank you for spending your time with Dr. Hale and me today. She has provided some great resources, and there are even more in the show notes. Please feel free to leave comments over on the Alopecia Life Facebook page or on Instagram. Dr. Hale is happy to answer any questions that come up after listening.
