Philosophy of Care
Dr. Homer aims to provide comprehensive ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgical care to her patients. She also enjoys improving patient confidence and self-esteem through restorative cosmetic facial surgery. In addition to clinical care, Dr. Homer strives to educate and inspire young medical trainees as an assistant professor in the UC Davis Department of Ophthalmology.
Dr. Homer completed her ophthalmology residency at Harvard Medical School and subsequently received specialty training in plastic and reconstructive surgical procedures of the eyelids, orbit, nasolacrimal system and face. She completed an additional fellowship through the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, training in procedures including rhytidectomy (facelift), platysmaplasty (necklift), forehead/brow lift, blepharoplasty (upper and lower eyelid lift) and autologous fat transfer. Dr. Homer is involved in numerous research endeavors, lectures at national subspecialty conferences, and educates young trainees as an assistant professor in the UC Davis Department of Ophthalmology.
Dr. Homer has performed research in the areas of orbital oncology, orbital and facial trauma, periorbital infections, eyelid and facial reconstruction, facial nerve palsy, pediatric orbital and adnexal disorders, nasolacrimal surgery, thyroid eye disease, cosmetic and functional surgical outcomes, wound healing, and oculoplastic fellowship education.
