Dr. Pearl Shih, Optometrist
I was born and raised in the Bay area and attended UC San Diego for my undergraduate work in Human Biology and Psychology. My passion for patient care led me to pursue a Doctor of Optometry degree from UC Berkeley.
I practice full scope optometry including contact lenses, pediatrics, and a license to treat and manage glaucoma and other ocular diseases.
Prior to 20/20 Optometry, I completed an externship at the Veteran's Affairs Hospital in Tacoma, Washington with an emphasis on ocular disease, including glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration.
I also completed an externship at both the Oakland Eastmont Wellness Center and the Hayward Wellness Center with an emphasis on general family eye care and urgent care visits. While at UC Berkeley, I was a graduate teaching assistant for Biology and Physiology.
Outside of work, I love hiking, traveling, and trying new foods. I'm excited to be part of the 20/20 Optometry of Silicon Valley Team and look forward to getting to know you and your family!
