Dr. Ting Zhang is the proud founder of Peak Vision Care in Boulder, Colorado, and takes pride in providing the highest level of care to every patient she sees. Dr. Ting graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in International Affairs from the University of Colorado at Boulder. In 2015, she received her Doctorate in Optometry from the New England College of Optometry in Boston, Massachusetts. Dr. Ting had extensive training in ocular disease, primary eye care, and low vision rehabilitation at Veteran Affairs Hospitals in Buffalo, Batavia, and West Roxbury, as well as at community health centers in Dimmock and East Boston. In 2017, Dr. Ting authored and defended five clinical case studies, and was awarded Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry, an honor held by fewer than 10% of optometrists in the U.S. 

Following her graduation, Dr. Ting Zhang proudly served three years in the United States Air Force at Seymour Johnson AFB, home of the F-15E Strike Eagles. As a young captain, she authored a comprehensive optometrist's guide to standardize Aircrew and Warfighter vision care across the Air Force.  From 2017 to 2018, Captain Zhang volunteered for deployment to Qatar, and ensured 24/7 access to emergency eye care for 9.4K Joint U.S. Forces and Coalition Partners in the Middle East. Capt Zhang received two commendation medals, and was lauded by General Harrigian for her dedicated service. Dr. Ting continues to live by the Air Force Core Values: Integrity First, Service Before Self, and Excellence in All We Do!

 

Dr. Ting is an avid supporter of self-sustainable eye care programs across the U.S. and throughout the world. During optometry school, she volunteered on eye care missions in Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Dr. Ting has volunteered with Remote Area Medical delivering eye care to patients in rural Virginia and Colorado every year since 2016.

Dr. Ting's passion is improving lives, one eye at a time. Dr. Ting understands first hand how critical vision is to raise quality of life as well as how crucial access to eye care is for timely sight- and life-saving interventions. Her late grandfather lost his ability to perform activities of daily living and suffered from anxiety and depression when his vision quickly deteriorated from end-stage glaucoma. In China where he lived, access to routine eye exams is not the norm, and glaucoma is an exceptionally insidious disease that without early intervention, patients and their families are unsuspecting of its perils until it is too late. Not wanting a repeat of this tragedy, Dr. Ting has made it her personal and professional goal to save families from preventable blindness through improved access to comprehensive eye care.
