She joined the accomplished medical staff of Ocala Eye in August 2006. Dr. Armstrong is an accomplished cataract surgeon utilizing no-shot, no-stitch techniques with the latest methods of astigmatism reduction. Moreover, her experience includes the instruction of ophthalmology residents at the prestigious Bascom Palmer Eye Institute on how to achieve the best visual outcomes. Her interests also include general ophthalmology and preventative eye exams. Dr. Armstrong's path to ophthalmology lead through both Florida State University and the University of Miami, where she began her medical school training in 1996. Her medical studies continued in Washington, D.C. where she earned her M.D. in 2000 at Georgetown University. Following her Georgetown Transitional Internship at Inova Fairfax Hospital, Dr. Armstrong began her residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio. Upon completion of her residency, she relocated to Miami and obtained medical staff positions at Bascom Palmer and the Veterans Affairs Hospital.

Dr Armstrong is very professional, friendly and knowledgable. Her staff is outstanding. The person who did all of my initial tests was very thorough, answered all of my questions and explained everything as she did the procedure.
