Lauren M. Huber, O.D. is an east-coast transplant. She was born in Burlington, Vermont, but was raised in Westbrook, Maine. She graduated from the University of Maine where she received her undergraduate degree in Biology. Dr, Huber then attended and received her optometry degree from the New England College of Optometry in Boston, Massachusetts. In both programs she graduated with honors.
Dr. Huber’s internships took her all over the country, with a community health rotation in Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts, an ocular disease rotation at the VA in Portland, Oregon, an ophthalmology and co-management rotation in Miami, Florida, and a primary care optometry rotation here in Boise.
Dr. Huber is a huge advocate for children’s eye health exams, as well as infants. She is an InfantSee provider and strongly encourages the parents of all babies between the ages of 6 months-1 year to contact Ada Vision Center for a free infant eye screening, to ensure that there are no ocular concerns that will impact your child’s development. She is a big proponent of corneal refractive therapy, where patients with eligible prescriptions sleep in oxygen-permeable rigid contact lenses overnight, then are able to enjoy glasses-free and contacts-free clear vision all day long! Dr. Huber uses these contacts herself and has been enjoying this method of vision correction for the last five years.
Dr. Huber is proficient in handling all areas of eye care throughout life, including diabetic eye health exams, glaucoma care, macular degeneration management, cataract and refractive surgery co-management, foreign body removal, amblyopia treatment. She believes that preventative education is one of the most important aspects of protecting your eyes for the future.
She is a regional director for the Idaho Optometric Association, and a member of the American Optometric Association, and Beta Sigma Kappa optometric honor society.
She has volunteered in the community providing ocular screenings at the Special Olympics and to our homeless veteran population.
