Ocular Prime

“My goal is to provide practical information to protect our eyes in every way possible,“ Pribis said. “I created this website to encourage a more informed visit to the eye doctor. I also want to be a resource within my profession and other health professions as well.”

The launch of her new website comes on the heels of healthcare reform, which has led to what Pribis describes as “less time for patient education.” She plans to use to make up for shorter visits to the exam room and to empower her followers to participate in their own personal health journey. Pribis has seen thousands of interesting cases in her young career and she strongly believes in her ability to connect with people of all ages. In 2015, she received the “Young Optometrist of the Year Award” for the state of Connecticut, which was given out by the Connecticut Association of Optometrists.

In private practice since 2010, Pribis now has over five years of experience as a board certified optometrist. She also teaches board review courses to students and continuing education courses to practicing doctors through KMK Educational Services. Furthermore, she provides mentorship to students as a board member of SUNY College of Optometry’s career development committee. Before starting her career, she was a member of the Dance Team during her college years at the University of Pittsburgh.

“I truly believe I’m a doctor that’s easy to talk to and communicate with,” Pribis said. “I simply want my website to be an extension of my personality.”
