About Dr. Edling

Dr. Edling’s passion is improving the health of every patient that she examines. Contact lens and glasses prescriptions are chosen with the patient’s specific lifestyle and needs in mind. Not only does she seek to give the sharpest vision possible through a thorough exam, but she also keeps a careful eye out for any underlying issues that may be surfacing.

Over the years, Dr. Edling has worked in cooperation with many local ophthalmologists and specialists in a variety of health care fields to co-manage the health of their patients. She continually strives to stay up-to-date with the latest medical advances for the eye in order to stay current on the best care to offer her patients.

She is proud and honored to serve our country’s heroes and their families at her primary care practice on base at Fort Knox.

Outside of the responsibilities at her practice, Dr. Edling enjoys time with her family and friends making memories in the outdoors, as well as time spent in cultural activities.
