Melissa Bollinger, OD

Dr. Bollinger has practiced for 28 years and has spent the majority of her career working alongside anterior segment surgeons. As a result, she has managed the pre-and post-operative care of thousands of cataract, cornea, and refractive surgery patients. She developed a dry eye specialty practice in 2009 in private practice because she realized how much OSD was affecting the visual outcomes of the surgery patients she was managing. She later served on a panel that designed & launched a dry eye specialty service in a large OD/MD practice. Currently, Dr. Bollinger works at Jacksoneye in the Chicagoland area where she practices medical optometry. At Jacksoneye, she has at her disposal most every dry eye treatment currently available and participates in the many FDA dry eye studies that the practice is participating in. She has spoken at various venues on the topics of OSD, surgical co-management, and ocular disease management. Dr. Bollinger graduated from Miami University with a double major in Biology and Piano Performance, and then completed her optometric training at The Ohio State University. She became an ABO Diplomate in 2014. She served as an Adjunct Clinical Professor at The Ohio State University from 2006-2012. She directed an externship program sponsored by The Ohio State College of Optometry where she had the opportunity to train & oversee several students in their final year of optometric training. Dr. Bollinger has been involved in several FDA pharmaceutical and surgical clinical studies(Dry Eye, IOLs, Presbyopia, Topical steroids, and surgical lasers). She has served on Advisory Board meetings and as a KOL for various companies, such as Alcon, Eyevance, Novartis, and Science-Based Health.
