Ophthalmology | Female

Dr. Rebecca Epstein, MD
I was born in Athens, Georgia. My father is also in medicine, and I decided that I wanted to pursue a career in medicine at the beginning of college. I chose the profession of ophthalmology based on the enjoyment that I felt when I worked in the field. I was able to work at an eye bank between medical school and college. And through this experience, I also got to know some of the ophthalmologists in town. It was evident how much they loved their job and loved the surgery. I could not have chosen a better specialty. I really love what I do. My decision to pursue a career in glaucoma was a thought that started to develop during my first year in ophthalmology residency. As my training has continued, I have found myself becoming even more interested in the field. I enjoy learning about the different ocular pathologies related to glaucoma, and I enjoy participating in and doing the surgeries. For my fellowship, I trained at the University of Colorado with 4 different glaucoma specialists. I truly feel that I trained at one of the best places in the country based on the clinical and surgical volume. I also had amazing mentors that were passionate about the field of glaucoma. I am happily married with two dogs that are currently my children.
