Bio

Dr. Marshall practices personalized ophthalmology—she believes it is important to listen to patients and takes the time to match their vision goals to their individual needs. She is a comprehensive ophthalmologist (eye surgeon) and dry eye specialist, welcoming patients of all ages. She has performed ocular surgery since 2000, including laser treatments for diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma , and secondary cataracts (YAG capsulotomy). She performs cataract surgery , using today's modern <em>aspheric</em>, <em>toric</em> and <em>multifocal IOLs</em>. She also preforms refractive lens exchanges and laser vision correction. Dr. Marshall has been performing LASIK eye surgery since 2003. She has performed over 4000 successful LASIK eye surgeries and would love to give you a complimentary consultation today to find out if you are a candidate for LASIK eye surgery. In addition to performing multiple surgeries, she also provides comprehensive routine eye examinations . These services include measuring for glasses and contact lenses, as well as screening and treatment for problems such as diabetic retinopathy, hypertensive retinopathy, glaucoma , cataracts , allergies, dry eyes, infections, strabismus (lazy eye), amblyopia, red eyes, and injuries. Dr. Marshall lives in Colorado Springs with her husband, two children born in 2004 and 2006, and a Boston Terrier. She is actively involved in her church, and also serves as an Assistant Den Leader for her son’s Cub Scout Den.
