Kristiana Dodaj, O.D., New York Optometrist
Born and raised in Albania, Dr. Dodaj is a multilingual eye doctor who’s fluent in Albanian, Spanish, and English. After graduating magna cum laude from St. John’s University with her Bachelor of Science in biology, she completed her Doctor of Optometry at the University of Houston College of Optometry. She then moved back to New York to practice optometry in the Manhattan area.
Dr. Dodaj has always had an interest in the medical field and recognized her passion for optometry while shadowing optometrists during her studies. She was drawn in to eye care after she saw how clear vision can instantly improve the lives of patients. As she’s practiced, she’s grown to appreciate the long-term connection she can make with her patients, knowing she’s made such an important difference in their lives.
Dr. Dodaj enjoys interacting with and caring for patients of all ages and particularly enjoys complementing her patients’ clear eyesight with fashionable, designer frames. She believes that providing quality, personalized care to her patients begins with getting to know each of them as much as possible to better understand their lifestyle and needs – which, as a result, lets her give the best treatments. She is excited to work alongside Dr. Yung-Han Chen at 10/10 Optics and looks forward to working with the talented team to not only meet patients’ needs and expectations, but to exceed them.
