About Me

As a comprehensive ophthalmologist at The Ohio State University, I treat conditions such as cataracts, eye trauma, refractive error, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration. Ophthalmology is amazing to me as it includes continuously evolving technology and microsurgical techniques. With these tools, we can improve vision and really make a difference in a patient’s quality of life and overall happiness. I pay special attention to each patient’s needs and encourage them to advocate for their health. I am proud to be part of Ohio State Havener Eye Institute and provide patients with compassionate eye care.

I spend a lot of time teaching the ophthalmology resident physicians on their inpatient rotations. Educating the residents is an honor and privilege. We see patients in the hospital at bedside and strive to treat them with compassion and excellence during their admissions.

My interests include volunteering in a free clinic, reading, and spending time with family and friends.

    I really felt at ease with Dr. Hiremath. She answered most of my questions before I even asked them! I feel comfortable in getting my cataract surgery done by Dr. Hiremath as soon as the surgery can be scheduled.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
