The Optometry Department recently hired Dr. Noha Seif. Dr. Seif will work at both our Northgate Plaza and Madison Center locations.

Dr. Seif received her Bachelor of Science degree in Visual Sciences and her Doctorate of Optometry degree with high honors from the Illinois College of Optometry in Chicago, Ill.

Dr. Seif went on to complete a Medical Contact Lenses Fellowship at the Casey Eye Institute at Oregon Health and Sciences University in Portland, Ore. She had the opportunity to work alongside some of the leading doctors in her field and is one of a handful of doctors to have completed this advanced clinical training.

“The foundation of my practice philosophy is patient advocacy,” shares Dr. Seif. “I enjoy working closely with patients, involving them in the decision making, and teaming together to exhaust all possible treatment options. I also aim to be actively involved in my field, staying on top of the newest treatments, products, and technology to provide the best care possible.”

In addition to comprehensive eye care, Dr. Seif provides specialty custom contact lens fittings for:

  • keratoconus
  • irregular astigmatism
  • high astigmatism
  • aphakia
  • iris trauma
  • post-transplant
  • post-refractive surgery

She has a particular interest in using scleral lenses for anterior segment conditions including severe dry eye, Bell's palsy, neurotrophic keratitis, and exposure keratitis.

Outside of work, Dr. Seif can usually be found wandering farmer's markets, exploring bookstores, being inspired by Bob Ross, and staying in motion via bike pedals, oars, or her own two feet. She plans to visit Australia, Turkey, and Ireland in the near future.
