OIS Podcast host Paul Karpecki, OD, sits down with Ashley Brissette, MD, who just launched an eye-focused cosmetic skincare line called Eye Revive by Daily Practice.

Now assistant professor of ophthalmology at Weill Cornell Medicine, New York Presbyterian Hospital, Dr. Brissette talks about her journey to physician and entrepreneur.

We get to hear how the Canadian-born, one-time performing-arts student transitioned into medicine and made her way to New York City, where her roster of patients includes the New York Rangers and Savannah Guthrie of NBC News and “The Today Show.”

After consistently being asked by female patients which consumer products were best for the skin around the eyes, Dr. Brissette decided to formulate the first and only 3-in-1 product to cleanse, hydrate, and remove makeup.
