Dr. Anastasia Soulas grew up in Avon, Ohio before moving to Columbus to study biochemistry at The Ohio State University. She was accepted to OSU College of Optometry after only three years of undergraduate school.
While in optometry school, Dr. Soulas was a member of the American Optometric Student Association, Women in White Coats, and Epsilon Psi Epsilon optometric fraternity. She also served as treasurer of Beta Sigma Kappa Honor Society and helped write and distribute a clinical decision making manual that is sent to every optometry student in the country.
In 2022, she graduated magna cum laude with a doctorate in optometry.
Dr. Soulas is currently completing an ocular disease residency at University of Kentucky, where she runs an urgent optometric care clinic. She is passionate about interdisciplinary care and treating the whole patient, not just their eyes. Her residency experience has made her comfortable treating a variety of ocular diseases as well as providing comprehensive eye examinations.
Outside of the clinic, Dr. Soulas loves to experiment with new cooking recipes, tend to her many plants, practice yoga, and go hiking with her boyfriend.
