As a frustrated patient I decided to educate myself and others in the beautiful optical world. With my strabismus/amblyopia left untreated due to lack of education I decided to understand my condition and educate myself to understand these conditions. Now with ten years of experience in the wonderful eye industry there are many things such as cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, diebetic retinopathy, contact lenses and more that I love educating patients about. Working side by side with Dr. Neil Satija has given me the knowledge to understand and help others understand their eyes and vision. Comprehending insurances and making sure patients understand their medical and vision insurance coverage is just a bonus in this field. I love to style patients with the right eyeglasses or to train a first time contact lens wearers. I am very passionate about what I do and I am very fortunate to work besides eye doctors and opticians who dedicate their lives to helping others. Today I am happy to say that one of the many people I have had the honor to help is my own young child who was diagnosed and properly treated for strabismus/amblyopia. There is no bigger satisfaction than helping others achieve better vision.
Después de muchas frustraciones por una condición de estrabismo y ambliopía que no fue tratada por falta de educación en mi país me enfoque en educarme en mi condición y en los ojos. Hoy Diez años después estoy enamorada de una industria que me a ayudado no solo a entender mis ojos sino también a educar a los pacientes a entender su visión. A sido mi reto entender condiciones como la catarata, amblyopia, miopía, hypertension, glaucoma y muchas más.E tenido el placer de trabajar al lado de optometrista como el doctor Neil Satija, y otros profesionales en la industria que se dedican a extender su conocimiento y en asesorar a pacientes dia tras dias. E aprendido a entender seguros médicos y de visión para poder hacer mi trabajo en la mejor capacidad que se me permite. Es un placer poder asesorar sus ojos con anteojos o contactos. Me apasiona mi trabajo y no hay satisfacción más grande que ayudar a mejorar su visión.
I absolutely love the eye care industry! After graduating from college in 2009 I began work at an optical and fell for the field. I love being able to help patients see and look their best. It is really important to me that spectacles fit the correct way so patients not only see the right way, but they look great doing it too! Since joining Green Eye Care I have really enjoyed building relationships with patients and the Harlem community. It’s always a pleasure to help style patients with the right look. I like to style patients with everything from cool funky eyeglass frames as well as more traditional glasses. Whether you have a round, square or triangular faces, it doesn’t matter, I’ll find the right frame for you!
