Dr. Howard completed an internship in internal medicine at Salem Hospital, then an ophthalmology residency at the Yale School of Medicine where she was Chief Resident and was awarded the Marvin Sears Award for Clinical excellence in Ophthalmology in 1991.  After a Retina fellowship at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary she practiced for several years as a retina surgeon. Subsequently she completed a second fellowship in Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus at Duke University. Dr. Howard is driven to help children achieve their best visual potential to succeed in their lives by treating patients with amblyopia, genetic disorders, eyelid capillary hemangiomas, performing procedures for blocked tear ducts and dermoid cysts, and surgical correction of strabismus in children and adults. She is also compelled to help adults regain their independence by treating patients with debilitating diplopia with non-surgical and surgical solutions.  

Clinical Trials

New treatments for many conditions are tested in clinical trials, which ultimately bring lifesaving new drugs and devices to the patients who need them most. By participating in a clinical trial, you may get access to the most advanced treatments for your condition, and help determine their benefits for future patients.
