WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I specialize in the medical and surgical management of pediatric eye disorders and adult/childhood strabismus. I have a special interest in amblyopia, congenital/pediatric cataracts, nasolacrimal duct obstruction, retinopathy of prematurity, pediatric strabismus and ocular motility disorders secondary to cranial nerve palsies, thyroid ophthalmopathy, and trauma. I am interested in public health ophthalmology and international health. I am a former Fulbright Scholar and have worked with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and ORBIS International (on a Flying Eye Hospital). Currently, I am receiving support from the National Institutes of Health to continue my research on retinopathy of prematurity. I am known as “Dr. Grace” to my patients. I enjoy sports and was a varsity diver for Duke University. I also enjoy SCUBA diving, traveling (and have visited more than 30 countries), and cooking.
