Ophthalmologist Dr. Lija Karlsone

Dr. Lija Karlsone started to work at the Dr. Lukins’ Eye Clinic already in the year 2003, so she is a part of our team since the founding of the clinic.

Dr. Karlsone graduated Latvian Academy of Medicine; afterwards she mastered a degree at the University of Latvia, Department of Optometry in the Faculty of Physics and Mathematics. She also acquired the residency program of Ophthalmology in the University of Latvia, postgraduate Medical Education Institute.

Dr. Karlsone participated in the experience exchange program in a private eye clinic in the USA, acquired theoretical and practical knowledge in Refractive Eye Surgery Program at the Carl Zeiss Meditec surgery center in Germany and visited the 12th European Congress of Ophthalmologists in Sweden.

For several years she worked as an optometrist in an optical store chain “Pasaules Optika”, where she gained a valuable experience correcting the sight with glasses and contact lenses.
Because of her true interest in the vision correction options, it was only natural for her to continue working in a more expanded field – vision correction with excimer laser, where she could use her knowledge in optometrics and professional skills as an eye surgeon.

Currently Dr. Karlsone is working at the Eastern Hospital of Riga as a neuro-opthalmologist and at the Dr. Lukin’s Eye Clinic, where she performs extensive vision examinations and provides eye disease diagnostics and treatments.

She has specialized in refractive surgery and neuro-opthalmology.
