Margaret E. Moore, O.D., F.A.A.O.

Dr. Moore is a residency-trained medical optometrist with a focus on comprehensive ocular health care (including diabetic eye disease, glaucoma, macular degeneration and dry eye syndrome) and contact lens exams (including soft lenses and RGP lenses). Dr. Moore is also trained and interested in low vision care and disorders of binocular vision, including double vision and other visual manifestations of traumatic brain injury.

While in optometry school, Dr. Moore served as President of the National Optometric Student Association, which performs glaucoma screenings in underserved communities. Dr. Moore also served on the board for Students Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity (SVOSH) with which she helped to collect and sort donated eyeglasses from Lions Clubs and traveled to Toliman, Guatemala to perform eye exams.

During her residency, Dr. Moore saw patients every week in the Yale Ophthalmology retina, glaucoma, cornea, uveitis and neuro-ophthalmology clinics, provided low vision care for inpatients in the Eastern Blind Rehabilitation Center, and provided optometric care for veterans with a history of traumatic brain injury.

Dr. Moore has presented at multiple national meetings and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry. This designation, which is earned after passing an oral examination and meeting rigorous qualifications of professional competence, is held by less than 10% of optometrists in the United States.
