We have added a new Optometrist to our staff! Please join us in welcoming Katie Walker, OD. Katie is low vision residency trained and spent time working at the Lighthouse in Chicago. She graduated from Illinois College of Optometry and hails from Batavia!
Her interest in low vision was sparked as early as the first year of optometry school, where she was partnered with a person with vision loss as part of a school project. She was amazed at how well this person had adapted to her vision, with the lifelong help of a low vision specialist. It was wonderful to know there was more to offer patients after a sight threatening diagnosis. The rest is history! One of Katie’s favorite things is to work with patients on is getting them back to doing what they love. She believes there’s nothing you can’t accomplish with a little bit of help.
In her free time she likes to write stories, paint, and go for walks. She also just adopted the sweetest puppy named Tai who loves to join her on her walks!
Next time you are visiting us be sure and give Katie a warm Spectrios welcome. We are so thrilled to have her join our team.
