After completing her residency in pediatric optometry at The Eye Institute at the Pennsylvania College of Optometry, Dr. Squeri began her private practice career as a practitioner at a top-ranked pediatric ophthalmology practice, University Children’s Eye Center in East Brunswick, NJ.

Dr. Squeri understands your child’s health and wellness concerns extend beyond routine eye care. At Pediatric Optometry and Vision Care, we will work closely with your pediatrician, school, teachers and other education professionals to ensure there are no refractive errors or binocular vision conditions negatively affecting your child's ability to learn. In addition, we will not hesitate to refer to other specialists if alternative care is required.
Dr. Squeri also provides vision therapy services for children and adults who have weak eye muscles causing eye strain, headaches, loss of place while doing near work and other symptoms caused by eye teaming disorders. In addition, she is experienced in treating binocular vision deficiencies and other visual disturbances caused by Traumatic Brain Injury (concussion). These cases may require a trial and error approach with vision therapy, prisms or other treatments.
