Dr.Tamburro of Eye Vision Associates received her Bachelor’s in biology at Binghamton University in Vestal, NY and her doctorate in optometry from New England College of Optometry in Boston, MA. Upon graduating, with honors, she completed a residency at SUNY College of Optometry in Pediatrics.

While in training Dr.Tamburro participated in numerous volunteer organizations such a Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity (VOSH) in which she traveled to Colombia to provide eye care for those in need.

During her residency Dr.Tamburro was taught to specialize in the areas of infant vision, children with special needs, pediatrics, vision therapy, and neuro-rehabilitative therapy. After residency, she was an assistant clinical professor at The Woodhull Medical Center through SUNY State College of Optometry, where she taught future optometrists and residents the specialty of pediatrics. Currently she works with our patients at Eye Vision Associates in the areas of primary care, pediatrics, vision therapy, visual perceptual therapy, and head trauma neuro-rehabilitative therapy. Twice a month Dr.Tamburro visits local assisted living facilities in order to provide care to the residents. She is currently an active member of the American Academy of Optometry (AAO), The College of Optometrists in Vision Development (COVD), and The Optometric Extension Program Foundation (OEP), and the American Optometric Association (AOA).

Dr.Tamburro enjoys volunteering throughout the year at local schools, libraries and summer camps in order to teach children about their eyes, and visits to the optometrist. She is very passionate about helping children to utilize their vision to the best of their ability and informing children and their families on the importance of eye care. In May 2013 Dr. Tamburro was honored from the Huntington Chamber of Commerce as one Long Island’s “Top 30 Under 30” professionals. In 2011, Dr. Tamburro was mentioned in the June issue of Women in Optometry for her Volunteer work at St.Luke’s Pre-School in Dix Hills. She is always interested in expanding the community’s knowledge on vision and learning and would love to visit your classroom or parent organization too!
