Dr. Yang received her bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience from Barnard College(Columbia University) in New York City. Dr. Yang went on to earn her doctorate in optometry and master’s in vision science from the State University of New York (SUNY) College of Optometry. After finishing her doctorate degree, she completed a Cornea and Contact Lens Residency at SUNY College of Optometry where she gained extensive training in the fitting of specialty contact lenses. Her training includes an emphasis on fitting rigid gas-permeable corneal lenses and scleral lenses on irregular corneas, orthokeratology lenses for control of myopia progression, contact lenses for aphakia, and prosthetic soft and hard shells for patients with ocular injuries.

She specializes in using contact lenses to allow patients with keratoconus, irregular corneas, and ocular surface disease to see clearly and comfortably. She also has a strong interest in slowing the progression of nearsightedness in children using eye drops, contact lenses or glasses. She has lectured on topics such as keratoconus, Stargardt disease, scleral lens fitting and more. Dr. Yang is an active member of the American Academy of Optometry and New York State Optometric Association. She has a strong interest in community service and has gone on medical mission trips to Panama, Mexico, and rural Australia to provide eyecare to those with limited access.
