Get to Know Dr. Charisse Chin

What is your favorite thing about being an eye doctor?

I love everything about being an eye doctor — from helping patients improve their vision, to the art of surgery, to the sounds the slit lamp makes as I examine a patient — all of it! I feel very fortunate to have “found” ophthalmology and oculoplastics.

What is your favorite holiday and why?

Definitely Christmas. It’s such a joyful time. There’s a chill in the air and eggnog lattes – what more could you ask for?

Where would you like to travel to someday?

The Dead Sea. An elementary school teacher shared her experience of floating in the sea with us and it’s been on my travel list ever since.

What is your favorite thing about working at VEA?

It’s the people who make up VEA! Staff members care about helping patients have a good experience. It’s really encouraging to see.
