Dr. Weiss specializes in routine eye care, specialty contact lenses, pediatrics, foreign body removals, glaucoma management and dry eye treatments. She has been married to Paul for 26 years and has three daughters: Becca (21), and twins Abby and Allie (20) who are all currently attending college. Outside of work, Dr. Weiss is giving a “Vision of Hope” to students and the public as she is out educating others on opiate addiction and recovery by telling her personal story.
Dr. Weiss likes to take time with her patients to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
