Tobin Ansel, OD, FAAO (OA 6731, OM141400)


I am originally from Boston, and have lived in Northern NJ since childhood. I graduated from University of Pittsburgh with a degree in Neuroscience. I became interested in optometry after suffering a serious eye injury in college– I had to see an optometrist multiple times and was impressed with my doctor’s ability to minimize my pain and preserve my vision. After graduating from college, I worked in the optometry field as a technician here at the Low Vision Center.

Creating great relationships with patients has always been important to me, and I appreciated the opportunities to do this as a Low Vision Center employee. I attended SUNY College of Optometry where I did research in the field of myopia control, and then completed a residency at the VA Connecticut Healthcare System, where I focused on low vision and ocular disease. I enjoy seeing patients of all ages, and am happy to be back at the Low Vision Center of Central New Jersey.
