Meet The Optometrist

Dr. Vanessa C. Marino

Dr. Marino was born and raised in sunny Miami, FL.  She completed her undergraduate education at the University of Miami in 2003, and received her Doctor of Optometry degree at Nova Southeastern University in 2007.  In 2008, she completed a residency in primary care and pediatrics/binocular vision.  Besides loving her career, Dr. Marino loves to teach. After completing her residency, she instructed and supervised optometry students at the Nova Southeastern University Pediatric Department in North Miami Beach until 2010.  She now serves as an adjunct clinical professor for the New England College of Optometry, where students come to complete a three month rotation to satisfy their internship requirements. 

Dr. Marino's commitment to Optometry continues to push her to greater education in order to optimize her patients' care and her students' learning.  In 2013, she became a Diplomate of the American Board of Optometry, and in 2014 became certified to administer Orthokeratology to her pediatric population.  

During her spare time, Dr. Marino enjoys spending time with her family, boating, and reading.
