Susan Watson, MD, FACS
Founder, President, and Ophthalmologist
Dr. Watson is the first board-certified, fellowship-trained conceal surgeon in the Triangle and Eastern North Carolina to specialize exclusively in Ocular Surface Disease, also known as Dry Eye Disease. Having performed over 17,000 refractive eye surgery procedures, she understands the importance of identifying and treating Ocular Surface Disease to give the best possible outcomes to vision-restoring procedures such as cataract and LASIK surgeries.
Dr. Watson attended the Miami University in Ohio, earning her Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematics and her Masters Degree in Statistics. Following her medical school training at the University of Cincinnati, she completed her residency at Michael-Reese Hospital-University of Illinois in Chicago, IL. She completed her fellowship in Corneal Disease and Surgery at Ohio State University.
In 1989, she opened her first practice in Rocky Mount, NC, dedicated to comprehensive ophthalmic care. She is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons, the American Board of Ophthalmology, and a member of the American Medical Association.
Dr. Watson is excited to share her extensive knowledge and experience with patients in The Triangle Area and beyond.
