Dr. Jeanie Paik and her family recently left windy Chicago for beautiful San Jose, and they couldn’t be happier about it! We’re thrilled that she has joined the family of eye experts at Eye Medical Clinic and are excited to introduce her to you.
Dr. Paik is a world-class physician with an elite pedigree. She earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Southern California in Biological Sciences and International Relations, and her Medical Doctorate from the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine. She performed her residency at New York Eye and Ear Infirmary in New York, NY. She then completed additional training with a cornea, refractive and external disease fellowship at Emory University in Atlanta, GA.
As a board-certified, fellowship-trained specialist and surgeon, Dr. Paik brings significant experience in diseases of the cornea and anterior segment. As of this month, she will serve as our go-to expert for all corneal cases, including cornea transplants, with specialized expertise in keratoconus, corneal dystrophies, pterygium and corneal infections.
Dr. Paik performs a variety of cornea transplants, including ultra-thin DSAEK and DMEK. Dr. Paik is trained in cross-linking, an advanced treatment to help stop the progression of keratoconus. She specializes in premium cataract surgery, including multifocal and toric lenses. She is also a dry eye specialist – look for EMC to begin offering a wide range of services for dry eye soon!
While Dr. Paik performs everything from modern cataract surgery to complex cornea transplants, her favorite part of her work is the opportunity for patient connection.
Vision is so important for quality of life. I love developing relationships with my patients and caring for them over time.
