About Dr. Yang

Dr. Yang received her bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience at Barnard College in New York City. Dr. Yang went on to earn her doctorate in optometry and master’s in vision science from the State University of New York (SUNY) College of Optometry.

She also has a strong interest in slowing the progression of nearsightedness in children using eye drops, contact lenses or glasses. She has presented posters and lectures on topics such as keratoconus, Stargardt Disease, scleral lens fitting and more.
