Meet Penny:

I am a mother of 3 children so for 25 years now the main part of my life and passion has been my family.
About 5 years ago I suddenly noticed I couldn’t read fine print and also having problems with distance. My optometrist gave me multi focal glasses to begin with, but they were a pain – they were hurting to wear and giving me headaches. I’ve just been put on a path to try the cutting edge contacts and I have to say, things are looking up.

  • Medicine X translates complicated ‘doctor speak’ into an entertaining and engaging story – so that every person regardless of age, gender, culture and condition, can have access to medical information they can understand and relate to. Working as a doctor, Medicine X’s founder realised that many patients were confused about their diagnoses, and didn’t have a proper understanding of their conditions or treatments. There was a disconnect between the language that doctors use, and what patients understand. Because of this, many people feel hopeless and anxious at a very difficult time in their lives.
