After completing an Ophthalmology Residency in Buffalo, NY, and a Fellowship at the renowned Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia, PA, Dr. Kent began  private practice in Syracuse, NY.  In 1991 she moved west to join the Denver Kaiser Permantente, specializing in Cornea and External Disease, during which time she performed over 500 corneal transplants.  About 25% of her Kaiser practice involved general ophthalmology, treating eye diseases such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration as well as performing  pterygium and cataract surgery.  She began performing refractive surgery with the excimer laser (PRK) in 1997.  Dr Kent left Kaiser in 2003 to begin her own practice.


Since 1989.

My mission, quite simply, is to provide the highest quality eye care possible to each individual eye patient.  I believe in getting to know the whole patient because the eye is NOT an isolated organ and the health of the entire body is reflected in and effects the functioning of the eye.  At my office, patients are treated with dignity and respect and have the right to complete explanations concerning their ocular health.  A patient who understands his/her choices is more likely to follow treatment guidelines and have a successful outcome.  I like to spend time with my patients and answer all of their questions.  Patient satisfaction is my goal.
