Dr. Lin's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Lin "Linda H. Lin, MD is a board-certified ophthalmologist, cataract surgeon, and glaucoma specialist. She grew up along the Texas Gulf Coast. She was raised in Port Lavaca, TX, “Home of the Fighting Sandcrabs.” Her academic achievements included being accepted into the prestigious 7-year Honors Program in Medical Education (combined BA/MD) at Northwestern University right out of high school. Ready to escape the Midwestern winters, she returned to the South to New Orleans to complete her ophthalmology residency at LSU/Ochsner and to experience Mardi Gras firsthand. Developing a particular interest in glaucoma, her fellowship training took her to Dean McGee Eye Institute at the University of Oklahoma where she trained with world-renowned glaucoma expert, Dr. Gregory Skuta. Becoming homesick, she finally made it back to Texas and joined Avery Eye Clinic. She practices general ophthalmology with a glaucoma subspecialty and is a member of the American Glaucoma Society. In her spare time, she enjoys boot camp and spending time with her husband and children. "

My daughter was diagnosed with cutaneous lupus and before she could be put on plaquenil, an eye exam by an ophthalmologist was required. I found Dr Lin, who has an office in the Woodlands, where we live. Halfway through the exam, Dr Lin informed me that my daughter would have to come back to finish...more
