Dr. Julie Yi is a native Houstonian. She graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. She then went on to receive her Doctorate of Optometry from Southern College of Optometry in 2005. During her optometric studies, she completed her externships at a private practice in Nashvile, TN, and at an air force base in San Antonio. There she gained valuable experiences in treating ocular diseases as well as fitting different types of contact lenses.
Dr. Yi is a therapeutic optometrist and a glaucoma specialist. She practices full scope of optometry, such as treating various eyes diseases and working with specialty contact lenses.
Dr. Yi has participated in medical mission trips to Mexico and various mission trips to southeast asia. She is an active participant in her local church community serving as a town leader in youth ministry. Dr. Yi decided to become an optometrist after a visit to her own optometrist. She hopes that one day she can also be a positive influence to someone who may desire to join this great profession.
When not working, Dr. Yi enjoys running, hiking, and spending time with friends and family. She is very excited to be part of this new community in Katy and hopes that we will be able to grow together as a family.
