Jill A. Kronberg, OD, FAAO received her Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from University of Northern Colorado and her Doctorate of Optometry from the Southern California College of Optometry. The following year, she completed a Residency in Pediatrics and Primary Care at University of California, Berkeley.
Dr. Kronberg is one of a select few optometrists in Idaho to become a Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry. The American Academy of Optometry is an organization committed to the art and science of vision care. The letters 'FAAO' (Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry) after an optometrists's name signifies that the doctor has met the rigorous qualifications for Fellowship and has been evaluated against the highest standards of professional competence (visit www.aaopt.org for more information). Fellowship with the American Academy of Optometry demonstrates a committment to evidence-based practice and a committment to lifelong learning for the advancement of patient care. This is why Fellows of the American Academy of Optometry have continued education requirements beyond the minimum requirement of the state's board of optometry.
Dr. Kronberg completed her residency in pediatrics and primary care at the University of California, Berkeley; making her the first Residency-Trained Pediatric Optometrist in Idaho. During her residency, Dr. Kronberg received specialized training in vision care for infants, toddlers, young children, and those with special needs. Her level of training and experience bring a new level of pediatric vision care to Idaho.
After completing her Residency, Dr. Kronberg was appointed Special Needs Consultant for Advanced Vision Therapy, and concurrently maintains her pediatric practice with Artisan Optics. She is also an Adjunct Faculty Member at the Southern California College of Optometry. Dr. Kronberg's experience positions her as an expert in pediatric vision care, with a personal passion for the special needs population.
“I chose to specialize in pediatrics because I value early intervention and also came to realize that for individuals with special needs, there is limited access to optometrists trained in the vision conditions specific to those populations. My Residency at University of California, Berkeley provided the optimum clinical setting to advance my training within this sub-specialty area of optometry. I was fortunate in that the tremendous patient volume enabled me to see a wide range of vision conditions at various stages of progression. I'm excited to bring my specialized training and experience to the Treasure Valley, as Idaho's only Residency trained optometrist in Pediatrics and Primary Care.”
