“I’ve always been interested in medicine and the way the body functions. I’ve known ever since I was little that I’ve wanted to work in the medical field. I grew up in Eugene and I’m very excited to work and serve the community I grew up in.”
Alexandria Jernberg, O.D. graduated from the Pacific University College of Optometry and went on to complete a variety of internships including the Roseburg VA, the Fort Washakie Indian Health Service, and the PeaceHealth hospital clinic.
“I grew up going to the eye doctor and needing glasses, and at that point realizing how much clarity I was missing out on. I specifically remember seeing the crispness of leaves after putting on my first pair of glasses. I’m also drawn to this specialty because it allows me to see patients of all ages and all backgrounds. I enjoy seeing different things every day and no two days are the same.”
Dr. Jernberg provides annual vision and medical exams to our patients in both our Eugene and Cottage Grove locations. In addition, she will provide treatment and management of dry eye and glaucoma, as well as post-surgical care and continue to broaden her knowledge, treatment, and care of our patients.
“I’m proud of how there are lots of new developments. The profession is always looking to learn more and always working to help make a difference in people’s lives.”
She is also available for myopia management and regular eye exams for children and teens. (She’s helping out quite a bit as you can see!)
“The world of eye care changes which is one of the reasons I love it, there are all kinds of new developments in all different fields, dry eye, myopia management, cataract surgery. I enjoy keeping up with new research studies and continuing education so I can best serve my patients.”
When asked what she loves about helping folks with their vision issues, Dr. Jernberg gave the following as her answer, and we knew she’d fit right in!
“The best part is the smile on someone’s face when they are able to see something they haven’t been able to see in a while, or ever before.”
We at Pacific ClearVision Institute are incredibly proud to Welcome, Dr. Jernberg. We are happy to have her here to help bring those smiles to the faces of our patients!
