About Me

I am a comprehensive ophthalmologist, specializing in cataract surgery, as well as LASIK and refractive surgery. As a comprehensive ophthalmologist, I also treat a variety of other conditions, including dry eye, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and macular degeneration, amongst others. I enjoy the variety of patients and disease processes that I encounter in my clinic. I love being able to educate patients on their conditions and treatment options, and work together with them to come up with a treatment plan individualized to their unique needs.

My research interests include outcomes associated with cataract surgery, and access to care in underserved populations.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband, our family, and our two labrador retrievers!

    She knew that I had been on a medication that could cause visual impairment. Before the exam she asked if I was currently taking this medication. Then she knew what type of issues to include in her exam.
