Dr. Grace S. Shin immensely enjoys general ophthalmology and is one of only three fellowship-trained pediatric ophthalmologists in the Las Vegas metropolitan area. Her peers and patients have repeatedly voted her a "Top Doctor" in ophthalmology. Dr. Shin is passionate about her profession and dedicated to providing exceptional care for the whole family--from newborns to grandparents.
"Ophthalmology enables me to care for children and adults of all ages--often multiple generations of a family. During long-term patient relationships, I relish watching children grow up and keeping abreast of the evolution of my older patients.
I appreciate ophthalmology's balance between interesting medicine and delicate surgery. I am excited to work in this challenging specialty with rapid advances. I often share the privilege of integrating patient care with other medical professionals, including a host of subspecialists."
