While at SUNY, Dr. Shema gained extensive experience in the diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases, including glaucoma and cataracts, and advanced training in pediatric eye care. She also enjoyed volunteering at the Special Olympics and providing vision screenings to students at New York City public schools.
Dr. Shema is an active member of the Northern Virginia Optometric Society and Virginia Optometric Association.

Dr. Shema has special interests in myopia control including orthokeratology, pediatrics, and glaucoma management. Outside of the office, she enjoys cooking, reading, traveling, and spending time with her husband.
