Alexa Pereira, OD


Dr. Pereira is part of our next generation of doctors; being a first-generation college graduate and Doctor of Optometry, the story of how she became Dr. Pereira is very inspiring.

Dr. Pereira first arrived at VED as a patient, where one of our doctors offered her a position on the spot due to her amazing personality & skills. “Alexa,” as our team lovingly calls her, quickly went up the ranks and became an Ophthalmic Technician at VED. Working alongside our doctors, she found her passion & new career: Eye Care. Now Alexa is back at VED as “Dr. Pereira,” a Board-Certified Optometrist.

Dr. Pereira completed her Bachelor of Science in biological sciences at the University of Maryland. Then she earned her Doctor of Optometry degree from the Inter-American University of Puerto Rico School of Optometry, graduating summa cum laude & class valedictorian. Dr. Pereira specializes in comprehensive family eye care & surgical co-management.
