Personal

Born in Cuba and educated in the United States, Dr. Ottenheimer is an engaging optometrist with great attention to detail. Thanks to her multinational background, fluency in English and Spanish, and experience working in diverse communities, she’s proud of her ability to adapt to any patient and build relationships with everyone she treats. When not providing high-quality eye care to patients in Southwest Florida, Dr. Ottenheimer loves to write and spend time with her husband and son in the great outdoors, hiking and biking.
