Dr. Wilson loves working as an Optometrist because it allows her to interact with all kinds of people. She particularly likes working with contact lenses including unusual and difficult cases, and determining the right prescription for a person’s needs. She is thoroughly trained in diagnosing and managing diseases of the eye as well as other eye conditions like binocular vision, focusing issues, and many more.

In her free time, Dr. Wilson and her husband Tim love to travel and spend time outdoors with their dog Penny.
