"Healthy eyes and comfortable vision are central to most patients' well being. I enjoy working with patients to find solutions to the many stressful visual tasks we all deal with in our modern lives. Screen time is a huge issue that causes dry eyes, headaches, eyestrain, and decreased productivity for so many students and professionals. These quality-of-life issues are my favorite issues to address, in addition to primary eye care, preventative care, and prescribing glasses and contact lenses."
We are excited to have Dr. Chan join our practice. She brings an enthusiasm that is contagious!
