Dr. Ashley Walkoviak - Shopko Optical optometrist

Ashley Walkoviak, O.D.

  • Primary eye care
  • Urgent eye care
  • Pediatrics
  • LASIK and cataract surgery co-management

Dr. Walkoviak decided to pursue optometry to give back to the profession that gave her life-changing confidence in reading and learning after she got her first pair of glasses as a child who struggled with vision and eye coordination. She enjoys first eye exams for children to minimize learning struggles and improve quality of life. For adult patients, she enjoys teaching them how their eyes are linked to their overall health and connect the dots between their symptoms and likely causes. Dr. Walkoviak won’t hesitate to coordinate care with additional physicians when appropriate.
