Education & Experience

While earning her doctorate, Dr. Castro completed multiple optometric rotations, gaining extensive experience in ocular diseases; this made her proficient in treating various diseases, including dry eye syndrome, glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and corneal and LASIK-related surgeries.

Dr. Castro’s interest in eye care began with her mother, who worked as an optician for over 30 years. Her focus as an eye doctor is entirely on the patient. Dr. Castro believes that the best eye care is a team effort between doctor and patient — which is why she takes extra time to explain test results and treatment objectives to her patients, so they can feel comfortable at their appointments and be proactive with their own vision and eye health.
