Lindsey Walsh is a Doctor of Optometry, whose services include diagnosing and assessing various eye health and vision conditions, including myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, lazy eye, red eye, and other issues.
Dr. Walsh attended the University of Central Florida, where she was a candidate for a Bachelor of Science in biomedical sciences before moving to Nova Southeastern University College of Optometry, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in vision science and then her doctoral degree in optometry, graduating with honors in both academic excellence and leadership.
Dr. Walsh has extended education and experience in providing adult and pediatric vision care, including assessing vision health and function, and prescribing glasses and contact lenses as well as other vision aids. In addition, Dr. Walsh is certified by Paragon Vision Sciences in Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT), an FDA-approved program that utilizes specialized lenses to help rapidly correct myopia in children. Early treatment for myopia can help children avoid certain related eye diseases, like cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration, later in life.
Dr. Walsh has externships in primary vision care, geriatric vision rehabilitation, ocular disease, contact lens prescription, pediatric and binocular vision, and other areas of focus. While still in optometry school, she served as a tutor for second-year students studying ocular disease and contact lens courses.
