ABOUT DR. SHAW:

  • Dr. Shaw was born and raised in Lockport, NY. She became interested in optometry and the eyes early in life, during science class in 7th grade at Emmet Belknap. Her childhood optometrist, Dr. Paul DeLange, allowed her to shadow him and continue to learn more about the career of optometry. Dr. Shaw pursued a pre-med, Biology major at SUNY Geneseo, with a minor in Art Studio. She then moved to Chicago to obtain her doctorate in optometry at the Illinois College of Optometry. She has been practicing optometry since 2013, through externships around the country, and then moving to Connecticut to pursue a career. Dr. Shaw headed back to the Western New York area in 2015, to work in a medically-based optometry/ophthalmology practice.
  • Dr. Shaw is pleased to now be serving Lockport and the surrounding communities. She has a passion for optometry and enjoys the one-on-one interaction involved with solving eye health and vision problems.
  • In her free time, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, playing tennis, traveling, and rooting for the Buffalo Bills and Sabres. She also loves her big dog, Walter.
