Nicole E. Kress, O.D. graduated from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry (PCO) at Salus University with a Doctor of Optometry degree. While there, Dr. Kress was a member of the Beta Sigma Kappa Honors Society all four years and received high academic honors upon graduation, as well as the award for Clinical Excellence in Pediatrics and Vision Therapy from The Eye Institute.
Dr. Kress then completed a residency in Vision Therapy and Rehabilitation at a prominent private practice affiliated with the Southern College of Optometry. Through this extensive program focusing on developmental optometry and pediatric eye care, she was trained to effectively diagnose and treat binocular vision deficits, learning related vision problems, amblyopia, strabismus, and acquired brain injuries that are affecting vision. While she enjoyed all aspects of her residency training, Dr. Kress has developed a particular interest in working with children to assist in eliminating any visual obstacles that are limiting their potential to succeed in the classroom.
Dr. Kress is originally from Nazareth, Pennsylvania. She graduated in the top of her class at Nazareth Area High School and went on to attend the Pennsylvania State University where she received a Bachelor of Science degree in Life Sciences.
