Dr. Cheryl G. Murphy’s love for vision began long before she attended optometry school. It started with vision research.
At the University at Albany, she worked as a research assistant for Dr. Sue Tieman who studied how visual experience can affect brain development. She also worked in the lab for Dr. Philip Kruger at SUNY College of Optometry studying how color can alter the eyes’ ability to focus.
Upon graduating from SUNY College of Optometry in 2004, she joined the practice of Dr. Frank S. Verdone and for the past ten years, she has practiced full scope optometry in Holbrook, New York.
Dr. Murphy makes educating her patients a priority, compassionately answering any questions they may have regarding their eye health and their vision. She also shares her passion for vision science with others through her widely published articles.
Dr. Murphy currently serves as a Contributing Editor to Review of Optometry and 20/20, two highly respected optometric trade magazines, and her articles have also been featured in Scientific American magazine’s guest blog, Huffington Post Science, Scientopia, Review of Optometric Business and SunVision.
In 2013, she was honored with the New York State Optometric Association Communications Award for her efforts to educate the public and eye care professionals on the wonders of the “science hidden in plain sight.”
When Dr. Murphy isn’t writing articles or seeing patients, she loves spending time with her husband and their triplet children. They enjoy swimming, boating on the Great South Bay and visiting her hometown in Upstate New York.
Dr. Murphy is excited to now be practicing at Mid Island Eye Physicians and Surgeons in Bethpage, NY. Schedule an appointment or stop by to see her today!
