Dr. Stephanie Sims grew up in Dublin and graduated from Dublin Jerome High School. She attended The Ohio State University for her undergraduate studies majoring in biology and business. Throughout her undergraduate years, she was vice president of the Pre-Optometry Club, and volunteered as a Young Life Leader at Westerville North High School. It was while she was an undergraduate that she first joined the Northwest Vision Center staff as an optician and technician, learning the fundamentals of the eye care business.
While in her third year as an undergraduate, Dr. Sims received early admission to The Ohio State University College of Optometry. During optometry school, she was president of Optometry Ambassadors, and held leadership positions in Beta Sigma Kappa honor society and Fellowship of Christian Optometrists. She was also a member of the American Optometric Student Association. Dr. Sims has gained experience in cataract surgery co-management and Refractive Surgery co-management at Northeast Ohio Eye Surgeons in the Akron area. She also gained experience in ocular disease at the Columbus VA Care Center. Her experience in pediatrics, binocular vision, vision therapy, and contact lenses allows her to provide care to patients of all ages.
Once graduated, Dr. Sims was given the opportunity to become a partner and part owner of Northwest Vision Center, and decided that there was no other place she’d rather provide eye care to her patients.
Dr. Sims and her husband Matt, also a Dublin native and Dublin Jerome graduate, live in Powell where they are involved in Olentangy Liberty’s Young Life and are very active in their church. In her spare time, Dr. Sims enjoys spending time with family and friends, working out, cheering on the Buckeyes, and playing with her furry child, a puppy named Chandler.
