Meet Erica Alfaro, O.D.
When I was in high school during my annual visits to the eye doctor, I realized more and more that the optometry profession matched my skill set and my desire to help people. While studying at University of Incarnate Word, I worked as a doctor’s assistant at a Vision Source in San Antonio to gain more perspective of the field.
I am currently a preceptor for 4th year optometry students at Good Neighbor Clinic where I help educate and guide graduating student doctors on fine tuning their skills as soon to be real world optometrists. I also participate in a vision program called See to Succeed at Good Neighbor clinic which provides hundreds of eye exams to children in the local area in need of glasses.
I am a member of American Optometric Association ( AOA) and Harris County Optometric Society (HCOS). These groups I participate in help further the profession of optometry and help me get continued education that allows me to keep up to date with the latest treatments in eye disease.
I was born and raised in San Antonio. Go Spurs! I went to Brackenridge high school and University of Incarnate World where I received a bachelor’s degree in psychology and biology. I like to run and participate in marathons and am a big beer fanatic. I have a 4 year old daughter named Sara who keeps me on my toes.
Thanks for visiting our site and I hope to see you soon,
