Dr. Cooper is a proud member of the National Board of Examiners of Optometry, Accreditation Council on Optometric Education, Association of Regulatory Boards of Optometry, American Academy of Optometry Fellow and the American Optometric Association.
Dr. Cooper joined Boling Vision Center because she recognized that this team is efficient, friendly and on the top of their game when treating and managing patients. She was impressed that staff members go through vigorous training programs specific to their department and the doctors are highly educated and up-to-date with current patient management.
My passion is connecting with my patients and educating them about their eye conditions. I feel a great sense of joy when I am able to explain an eye condition and work with the patient to find the best solution.
Dr. Cooper first met her husband on an airplane. Their seats were next to each other and they talked the whole way to their destination. They exchanged phone numbers after the flight and the rest, as they say, is history.
