Kristine Eng named Optometrist of the Year

As an optometrist, one of the most meaningful recognitions that we get as eye doctors is from our patients, but next to that, the most meaningful is from our colleagues. Being selected to receive the recognition of OD of the Year from our own colleagues has very special meaning.

Dr. Kristine Eng graduated from the UC Berkeley School of Optometry in 1998.  She was awarded the ACCCOS Young Optometrist of the Year in 2009, and the American Optometric Association Young Optometrist of the Year in 2005 for her service to her community as well as the optometric profession. She also had the honor of being included in Vision Monday's 2006 "Fifty Most Influential Women in Optometry."

The last few years she has dedicated more time locally and enjoys participating on the local preschool board as well as being an active member of the Lamorinda Moms Club. In her free time she enjoys skiing, golfing and traveling with her family. In the photo is her husband, Michael T. Smith, Kristine Eng, and her two children, Anarose and Pierson.
