Her areas of expertise include LASIK, PRK/ASLA, implantable contact lens, refractive lens exchange, keratoconus and collagen cross-linking, intracorneal rings and inlays, pterygium removal and cataract surgery with premium lens implants.

She has worked with technologies running in parallel to her ophthalmic work, including programs using neuroplasticity in order to improve vision.
