Born and raised in central Michigan, Dr. Katherine Miller developed a passion for the mechanics behind vision and eyewear as a teenager. She grew up in a family with poor eyesight, and began wearing glasses at six years old. She later graduated from Ferris State University where she earned her Doctor of Optometry Degree and BS of Applied Vision Science.
As Dr. Miller considered the destination that best suited her post-graduate life she spent time traveling abroad and immersing herself in many global cultures through medical missions and study abroad programs. Small town life close to the ocean had the most appeal and so she relocated to the Delmarva Peninsula.
Since landing in Delaware Dr. Miller not only met her husband but found a place to call home. Dr. Miller and her husband, Tim, live in Rehoboth Beach with their two young children. They enjoy spending time outdoors, especially at the beach. Most summer weekends you can find them at Keybox beach enjoying time with friends.
While Dr.Katherine Miller is a skillful optometrist, she has always had a passion for viewing eyes as a piece of the dynamic health puzzle. As a result she has placed a large emphasis in her career on the health of the whole person, not just the eyes. Dr. Miller prides herself on taking time with each patient. She sees each patient as an individual with unique problems and perspectives. She understands that the best medical care and advice is not effective if not clearly explained. She takes pride in teaching her patients how to take care of their eyes for life long clear vision.
Dr. Miller’s strength lies in the detail she applies to her work. She firmly believes that her patients deserve not just good eye care, but excellent eye care. She envisions a world where excellent eye care meets the individual’s sense of self and personal taste.
