Assistant Professor, Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences

We are pleased to welcome Jessica Yang Walia, MD to our team of Cornea Faculty.

Dr. Walia recently completed her cornea fellowship with us and we are trilled to add her to our team of expert physicians.

I picked ophthalmology because it is an incredibly gratifying field. Vision is such an important part of a person’s quality of life. It is also a huge plus that we get to sit down and take off our shoes when we operate.
