Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Muir I feel very privileged to take care of patients at the Duke Eye Center. I believe that everyone deserves state-of-the art and compassionate eye care and strive to provide both to my patients. I particularly enjoy working with my patients to develop the plan of care that is tailored to their needs. Many of my patients have glaucoma or are at risk for glaucoma although I also take care of people with general eye conditions such as cataract. My research focuses on helping patients with glaucoma self-manage their disease by improving patient educational materials studying communication between patients and doctors and developing a novel eye drop bottle that helps patients instill their eye drops correctly. My North Carolina roots run deep- originally from Charlotte I am fortunate to have been educated both at UNC and Duke my husband works at Duke and my three daughters were born in Duke Hospital.
