Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine and surgery, which deals with the diagnosis and treatment of eye disorders. Ophthalmologists are experts in the diseases, functions, and anatomy of the eye. They may provide routine care such as vision testing, as well as prescribe and fit eyeglasses or contact lenses. However, ophthalmologists are also surgeons. They repair traumatic injuries to the eye and perform cataract, glaucoma, and corneal surgery.

Fluent in both English and Spanish, Dr. Clemente has been the recipient of several awards and honors throughout her fruitful career. These include: Patients’ Choice Award (2014, 2016) and Compassionate Doctor Recognition (2015).
