WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I feel very privileged to take care of patients at the Duke Eye Center. I believe that everyone deserves state-of-the art and compassionate eye care and strive to provide both to my patients. I particularly enjoy working with my patients to develop the plan of care that is tailored to their needs. Many of my patients have glaucoma or are at risk for glaucoma, although I also take care of people with general eye conditions such as cataract. My research focuses on helping patients with glaucoma self-manage their disease by improving patient educational materials, studying communication between patients and doctors, and developing a novel eye drop bottle that helps patients instill their eye drops correctly. My North Carolina roots run deep- originally from Charlotte, I am fortunate to have been educated both at UNC and Duke, my husband works at Duke and my three daughters were born in Duke Hospital.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My goal is to reduce blindness from glaucoma. My research focuses on making it easier for patients to take their glaucoma medications. I have studied patient/provider communication, developed resources to help patients understand and remember to take their medications, and developed a new eye drop bottle that makes taking eye drops easier for some patients. My work has been funded by the National Institutes of Health, the US Department of Veterans Affairs, and the American Glaucoma Society.
