    Julie Schallhorn, MD, MS is Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at UCSF. Dr. Schallhorn received her undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering from UCLA, and her Master’s degree in Bioengineering from UCSD. She then completed medical training at the University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine, and her ophthalmology residency at UCSF. She went on to fellowship training in Uveitis at the F.I. Proctor Foundation at UCSF, and in Cornea at the Casey Eye Institute in Portland, Oregon. She was on faculty at the University of Southern California’s Roski Eye Institute before returning to San Francisco and UCSF.

    Dr. Schallhorn has strong research interests in the study of anterior segment disease and refractive surgery, and is deeply invested in obtaining the best possible results and experiences for her patients. She has authored numerous peer-reviewed articles on visual outcomes, ocular surface disease, and patient satisfaction after refractive surgery. She currently sits on the Ophthalmic Technology Assessment Committee for Refractive Surgery for the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the Young Eye Surgeons Committee for the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons.
