Dr. Huh brings extensive experience in treating cataracts, diabetic eye conditions, dry eye, and glaucoma. The fellowship-trained eye care physician and glaucoma specialist looks forward to utilizing EvergreenHealth’s advanced eye care technology to provide the highest quality treatment options to her patients.

“We are proud to welcome Dr. Sara Huh to EvergreenHealth’s Eye Care practice, where she will work among specialty-trained ophthalmologists to diagnose and treat complex problems of the eye,” said EvergreenHealth CEO Bob Malte. “Dr. Huh’s expertise, coupled with her excitement to be at the forefront of eye care technology, complements our high standards in using the latest treatment innovations to meet the evolving health care needs of our patients.”

Prior to joining EvergreenHealth, Dr. Huh completed her ophthalmology residency and glaucoma fellowship training at the Illinois Eye and Ear Infirmary in Chicago. Following her training, Dr. Huh provided ophthalmology services, focusing on cataract and glaucoma surgery, at a private practice in the Seattle area prior to joining EvergreenHealth. Dr. Huh enjoys helping patients attain their best possible vision. Her relationship-based philosophy of care is founded on the belief that physicians should work as partners to their patients during their health care journeys. Her goal is to help patients to better understand their diagnoses, so that they can make their own informed decisions about their treatment options.

The team of ophthalmologists at EvergreenHealth Eye Care use a patient-centered approach with a focus on disease prevention to provide quality eye and vision care to patients of all ages. The practice offers medical, surgical and optical eye care to patients, including adult and pediatric eye exams, glasses prescriptions assessments, and cataract surgery and treatment for various eye conditions, infections and disorders.
