Amanda Zeller Manley OD, FCOVD
CEO and Clinical Director of the VCDC since 2006, Dr. Amanda Zeller earned her Doctorate of Optometry with honors at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She developed an interest in vision therapy and vision development after a professor referred her to the VT clinic for headaches she experienced while working on the computer.
Dr. Zeller then completed an externship program with emphasis in Binocular Vision at Tianjin Medical University's Tianjin Eye Hospital, China, studying under Dr. Kanxing Zhao, a world-renowned expert in strabismus, strabismus surgery, and ophthalmic genetics.
Prior to joining the VCDC, Dr. Zeller provided primary eye care to patients in San Diego, California, and the greater Washington, DC, area. She has been Board Certified in Vision Therapy, Vision Development, and Vision Rehabilitation through the College of Optometrists in Vision Development since 2011.
Dr. Zeller lectures at schools, workshops, and symposia for optometrists and other professionals, as well as parents and teachers. She is available for speaking engagements in person and virtually.
In her free time, Dr. Zeller and her husband are chasing three rambunctious elementary school kids.
