About Dr. Jinyoung Choe
“I love optometry because I get to interact with people on a daily basis. It is a stimulating and challenging profession that allows me to help improve my patients’ quality of life. I get enormous feelings of satisfaction from the knowledge that my work will help people preserve their eyesight. As someone who used to wear glasses in the past, before my LASIK, I understand parents’ frustration when their child’s eyesight continues to drop. Now I can happily tell them that our new Orthokeratology treatment can help prevent progression of their nearsightedness!”
