Dr. Stefanie Taing was born and raised in Austin, Texas and graduated from The University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition. Her passion for optometry was solidified when she worked as an optometric technician at Innovative Eyecare. She went on to earn her Doctorate of Optometry from the University of Incarnate Word at Rosenberg School of Optometry in San Antonio, Texas.
She completed her clinical rotations at Community Eye Care in Fort Worth, Texas and at the Amarillo Veterans Affair where she diagnosed and treated ocular diseases. She also volunteered in a mission trip to Guatemala where she provided eye care to the underserved population of Chichicastenango, Guatemala, and to the orphans of the Village of Hope Guatemala.
Dr. Taing is an active member of the American Optometric Association, the Texas Optometric Association, and the Central Texas Optometric Society. When Dr. Taing is not in the office, she enjoys trying different chocolate cakes and balancing this out with long runs. She has completed several Austin Half-Marathons and plans to complete many more in the future. She is excited to return to Innovative Eyecare as a therapeutic optometrist and certified glaucoma specialist.
