Dr. Ellin Wu graduated from Berkeley Optometry in 2008 after receiving her Molecular and Cell Biology degree from UC Berkeley in 2004. She then completed a Contact Lens Fellowship at the Jules Stein Eye Institute at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.

She also enjoyed contact lens fitting for aphakic babies. Dr. Wu has a passion for helping patients with irregular corneal conditions by restoring vision and quality of life through specialty contact lenses. After her residency, she worked at a busy cornea practice seeing patients who had cataract, refractive or corneal transplant surgery.

She enjoys all aspects of optometry as well as giving the best quality medical eye care to her patients. She is Glaucoma certified and completed her clinical rotation training at the Portland VA Medical Center, New Mexico VA Medical Center and the Omni Eye Services in New Jersey.
