Board Certified: National Board of Examiners in Optometry OD: University of California at Berkeley School of Optometry BS: Biological Sciences, University of California at Santa Barbara Member: American Optometric Association, California Optometric Association, Beta Sigma Kappa International Optometric Honor Society Volunteer: Providing eye exams and other vision care services to underprivileged children in the local community and in South America. Focused on Education "When I was completing my doctorate in optometry, I enjoyed every aspect of my experience- from research to hands-on patient care. Although I am proud of what I've accomplished, I know that a great education alone is not enough. That's why I continue to take advanced training courses to stay on the leading edge of the profession. It's the best way for me to help my patients maintain opti- mum vision health for life?." Helping Those In Need "One of my most rewarding experiences has been volunteering in both the local community and in South America. I've had the opportunity to provide eye exams to underprivileged children here in Berkeley, and I also spent several months in Chile providing vision care in impoverished communities., During this time I have met some truly inspiring people. I plan to continue my volunteer work in the years to come."? Providing Innovative Vision Solutions "An exciting aspect of optometry today is that there are so many technologies available to help patients enjoy clearer vision. One of these is Corneal Refractive Therapy, which uses therapeutic lenses worn during sleep to provide excellent vision all day without glasses or contacts. Another innovation is multifocal contact lenses. These allow people who would have required traditional bifocal glasses to see clearly at all distances with contacts. I am proud to provide these and other innovative vision solutions for my patients."
