About Dr. Schiedler

Dr. Schiedler was born in Mexico City where she learned Spanish as her first language. However, she spent most of her childhood in Oregon. As an exchange student in Belgium for a year, she acquired an expanded horizon and worldview, as well as some fluency in French.

Dr. Schiedler enjoys practicing the full spectrum of ophthalmic and orbital surgery, including functional and cosmetic work. Whether preserving vision or enhancing her patients’ natural beauty, her goal is to help her patients thrive and lead productive and fulfilling lives, both here and abroad.

Experience

Dr. Schiedler attended Stanford University where she knew early on that she wanted to help others in a direct way while using her hands. She majored in Human Biology and graduated with honors. She then attended medical school at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) which is in the top 10 medical schools in the nation. From a very young age, she was always attracted to tiny things and had a glass miniature collection. It was a natural fit to pursue a career in Ophthalmology. She attended the #1 ranked residency in the US at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Miami, FL and trained in oculoplastic and orbital surgery with the world-renowned oculoplastic surgeons Dr. David Tse and Dr. Thomas Johnson. Desiring to come home to the Pacific Northwest, she further refined her skills as an American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Surgery fellow at the University of Washington in Seattle, doing over 1400 cases in 2 years, at this competitive program. She has published several articles and book chapters and presented at many national ophthalmic and oculoplastic conferences. She has also spent time abroad in Nepal, Ethiopia, and Honduras to surgically improve people’s lives in areas with limited access to her skills.

She worked for several years at Kaiser Permanente in San Diego, serving 500,000 members in the region, taking care of a wide variety of oculoplastic problems, and did high volume surgery, with more than 400 cases per year. Wanting to return to Oregon once again to be closer to family, she has served the Southern Oregon and Northern California region for the past 3 years. She is now in solo practice in Ashland in order to provide an intimate setting where patients can receive exceptional and customized care.
