Dr. Jessica Nilsson, OD
Dr. Jessica Lin was born in Taiwan, but moved to Maryland at a young age. Originally from Rockville, Maryland, she attended Johns Hopkins University and the University of Maryland where she earned a B.S. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Dr. Jessica Lin earned her doctorate of optometry from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry in 2008, graduating third in her class. She has received numerous awards and scholarships during her years in graduate school and was a member of the Beta Sigma Kappa International Optometric Honor Society. Dr. Lin was also a member of the National Optometric Student Association (NOSA) which promotes minorities in the optometric field and provides eye care awareness via events like school screenings. She moved to Virginia Beach to join the Coastal Vision family from a private practice in the western Virginia area. Dr. Lin brings her extensive clinical knowledge and experience to the practice. She enjoys the fitting of both soft and rigid contact lenses, but her main interests are in the co-management of refractive and cataract surgeries and the treatment and management of ocular diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, and ocular emergencies. Her area of concentration is in the diagnosis and treatment of dry eye syndrome and other ocular surface diseases that may be caused by occupational, recreational, or other environmental factors. Dr. Lin has frequently lectured on visual and ocular disorders for community organizations, support groups at local hospitals, and local nursing homes. She is an active member of the American Optometric Association, the Virginia Optometric Association (VOA), and was the recent secretary/treasurer of the Shenandoah Valley Optometric Society (SVOS). She is also a volunteer member of the National Red Cross. Dr. Lin resides in Virginia Beach with her husband Dr. Nilsson and cat, Paxton. In her spare time, she enjoys cooking and baking for friends and family. Although she loves cooking all types of food, baking is her favorite activity particularly because of her big sweet tooth.
