Shanika Esparaz, MD

Hi there. I am a practicing and board-certified Ophthalmologist and fellowship-trained Medical Retina Specialist. I have been practicing for 4 years in northeast Ohio. I recently became board certified in lifestyle medicine to be an advocate to physicians, colleagues, and patients on preventative medicine and how that can apply to your eyes, especially for conditions I manage, such as macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.

I love educating on social medial platforms about retinal health and wellness and also about being a mother in medicine. I've had the honor of being featured in Healio videos, most recently on Mend the Gap.
