Dr. Michelle Ma was born and raised in Houston, Texas where she received her Bachelor of Science in Nutritional Science from the University of Houston. She continued her studies at the University of Houston College of Optometry where she received her Doctor of Optometry degree in 2016. While in school, she was selected to be a member of the optometric honor society and a teacher's assistant.
Dr. Ma completed an externship in Dallas where she worked at a community clinic with a primary focus on ocular disease including glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, uveitis as well as cataract assessment for low income patients. Dr. Ma completed her next externship in Austin at a large private practice where she provided comprehensive eye exams and a variety of contact lens fittings. Since she loved the city of Austin so much during her externship, Dr. Ma decided to take the leap and move to Austin, TX after graduation. She is currently licensed to practice therapeutic optometry and is certified as an Optometric Glaucoma Specialist.
Dr. Ma enjoys spending time with her cat, dog, and her husband, David. During her spare time, she enjoys hiking, traveling, and exploring the food scene.
