Dress Up The Tree: Ornaments by Dr. Amorette Hanna

2020 Women In Optometry holiday gift guide

Dr. Amorette HannaAmorette Hanna, OD, loves that optometry allows her to help others. Splitting her time between two small group practices in the Raleigh-Durham area of North Carolina, Dr. Hanna focuses on primary care with an emphasis on pediatrics and myopia management.

Dr. Hanna started a blog in 2014 as a creative outlet and a patient education resource. She decorates cupcakes into various eye conditions and uses them as a visual to educate the public in a fun and easy-to-understand way. Over the past six years, Dr. Hannah has expanded her network among her fellow eye care professionals on social media, and she has since started making Christmas ornaments “to share my nerdy love for all things eyes and glasses with my fellow eyewear enthusiasts!”

Dr. Hanna donates 50% of the proceeds from the Etsy shop holiday sales each year gets donated to Samaritan Health Center, a non-profit she volunteer with, in Durham, North Carolina. The health center provides medical, dental, and vision care for uninsured or underinsured in her community.

FAVORITE CREATION: “The glitter red ornament with white glasses—it’s classic and festive!”
