Lanette Green, O.D. received her Doctor of Optometry from Illinois College of Optometry in 2001 and earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Indiana University in 1996.

Dr. Green’s regular appointments with the eye doctor as a child served as her inspiration for choosing the profession of optometry. This taught her that although contacts and glasses are frequently the reason people go to the eye doctor, optometrists can do much more to maintain the internal and external health of patients’ eyes. Dr. Green loves getting to know her patients and learning more about them to pinpoint their specific concerns and create a treatment plan for their individual eye health needs.

In Dr. Green’s free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, two daughters and two dogs.
