Dr. Nicole Leo, O.D, an Optometrist specializing in primary care and ocular disease, graduated from Optometry school at the University of Alabama Birmingham. Following her conclusion of Optometry school, Dr. Leo successfully completed an ocular disease residency at Seidenberg Protzko Eye Associates in Havre de Grace, MD. There she received extensive training in primary eye care, pre-operative and post-operative care, and ocular urgencies/emergencies.
Dr. Leo says that her interest in optometry first arose during college. “I was taking various biology, neuro, and perception courses. Optometry was a field I initially considered as it combined all my interests. My interest later grew during my residency, where I was able to participate in clinical research trials and in providing emergency eye care to patients. I enjoy practicing in a way that combines both the science and research behind care and applying it to patient care. I’m thrilled to be doing what I love in the Monadnock region.”
In her free time, Dr. Leo enjoys reading and spending time with friends and family. She appreciates the many trails around her home in the Monadnock Region for hiking and running.
