Dr. Malinda Pence, a graduate of The Ohio State University College of Optometry, is a dedicated optometrist passionate about providing family eye care in a community-based practice. She is an active member of the AOA, OOA, and Cincinnati Optometric Association.
Driven by a personal connection to visual health, Dr. Pence's journey in optometry was prompted by her grandmother's struggle with macular degeneration. Witnessing the impact of this condition sparked her desire to help others and make a difference in their lives through comprehensive eye care.
After briefly practicing in a local commercial setting, Dr. Pence realized her vision of delivering advanced medical eye care within a community-based environment. In 2002, she decided to acquire a long-standing Madeira practice that had served the community since 1956. With determination and a strong commitment to patient-centered care, Dr. Pence transformed the practice into a full-spectrum medical care clinic.
Dr. Pence's expertise lies in managing medical eye conditions, focusing on dry eye syndrome and eye allergies. She has also actively participated in the InfantSEE early childhood wellness exam program and engaged in medical missions to provide much-needed eye care to families in developing countries.
As a devoted practitioner, Dr. Pence invests in continuous education and remains at the forefront of optometric advancements.
Outside of her profession, Dr. Pence cherishes spending time with her husband, two children, and their border collie, Findlay. Her dedication to her family and patients exemplifies her unwavering commitment to providing exceptional eye care and positively impacting her community.
