Dr. Zelmira Farmer was raised in Houston, Texas. She received her Bachelor of Life Sciences degree from Arizona State University and was a medical technician in the United States Air Force Reserve for 11 years. She then went on to graduate with honors from MCPHS University School of Optometry after completing one year of externships. Dr. Farmer was trained in treating ocular diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and many more.
She also completed an externship specializing in fitting specialty lenses which help enhance vision for patients with keratoconus, pellucid marginal degeneration, dry eye and other forms of corneal disease. Very few doctors exist like her who can fit all lens types, from RGP hard contacts to the new and innovative Scleral lenses. Dr. Farmer takes pleasure in working with people and helping them achieve their best vision and optimize their ocular health. She takes the time needed on everyone and makes sure to address their every concern. Once a patient sees Dr. Farmer, they request to see her from that point on.
Her talents are invaluable. She makes EYE Central capable of treating nearly every type of eye problem imaginable. In her free time, Dr. Farmer enjoys spending time with her husband and family, playing tennis, traveling and reading.
