Dr. Petrilla is the best eye doctor I've ever had! She has completely changed my life post lasik. When I asked my last dr. about my dry eyes he told me to eat foods with flax. She actually listened, performed tests and prescribed me a treatment that has drastically changed my condition. I no longer have red, dry, vampire eyes. In my follow-up appts she is attentive and spends the time to describe what has happened and goes through all the detail of options. She is a smart, awesome doctor!!
Dr. Petrilla is an exceptional opthomologist. She truly cares about the patient and understands eye care needs. I have recommended her in the past and will continue to do so. She is very knowledgable and the staff and Vision Care Specialist is amazing. If you need glasses, you must go here.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Petrilla's Care Philosophy

Dr. Ellen Petrilla graduated from Ohio University with undergraduate degrees in psychology and biology. She then went onto pursue her optometry degree at the University of Houston. During optometry school, Dr. Petrilla worked for a neuro-ophthalmology practice, where she assisted in the diagnosis and treatment of many neuropathies, such as optic neuritis and temporal arteritis. Her patient care experiences at this neuro-ophthalmology clinic led to an article published in the Review of Optometry about Horner s syndrome. In addition, Dr. Petrilla did an internship at Queen Victoria Hospital in England. During her rotation, she assisted in the pre and postoperative care of corneal transplant patients, and had the opportunity to treat other corneal anomalies. Her training in England allowed her a chance to travel to different countries, such as France, Holland, Spain, and Ireland. Besides traveling, some of Dr. Petrilla s other hobbies and interests include hiking, skiing, painting, and art collecting.
