Dr. Kim loves practicing ophthalmology and has felt privileged to be able to restore sight and provide excellent vision for her patients throughout her career.
Dr. Kim places a strong emphasis on connection with her patients through listening and empathy.

Dr. Kim uses the latest in diagnostic and surgical technology and continues to push herself to innovate.
Dr. Kim practices refractive surgery because she feels that every patient deserves to achieve their best vision possible. She also enjoys the patient interactions with her happy refractive surgery patients. Dr. Kim enjoys being able to offer her patients a vast array of refractive surgery options such as LASIK, PRK, ICL, and CLE. In addition, keratoconus patients will often be discovered at their refractive surgery consultation, and she enjoys providing crosslinking as an option to stabilize vision.
