Meet Dr. Dean

Background

Dr. Dean has worn glasses and contact lenses from a very young age and has always loved going to the eye doctor.  Born and raised in Whitney Point, NY, she began her education at SUNY Broome and finished her bachelor’s degree in Biology at SUNY Albany.  Dr. Dean then attended the Pennsylvania College of Optometry in Philadelphia, graduating with Honors in 2010.  Because of her love of this area, she knew she wanted to practice in Upstate New York.  Getting her start in a large optometric practice in the Southern Tier, she gained experience in a wide variety of eye diseases and their treatments.  When the opportunity presented to join the team at Clarity Eye Care, she knew that is would be a good fit for her personality, values, and style of patient care.  Dr. Dean has combined her love for travel and optometry by working with VOSH (Volunteer Optometric Service to Humanity) where she has had the opportunity to spend time Cap Haitien, Haiti and the Coya District of Peru, offering eye care and glasses to areas that would otherwise have no access to care.  She is always looking forward to future trips.  Outside of the vision world, she enjoys painting, reading, and spending time with her family.
