Ellen Davis, M.D. grew up in Northern California and completed her undergraduate degree at the College of William and Mary in Virginia. She graduated with highest honors and was a scholarship athlete in volleyball, as well as team captain.  After college, she spent two years working at a retina practice, which ignited her interest in ophthalmology.

In 2007, she received her medical degree from Oregon Health Science University, and went on to complete ophthalmology residency at OHSU Casey Eye Institute. During residency, she was trained in the medical and surgical care of a wide variety of ophthalmologic conditions. She also conducted research in the clinical manifestations of tuberculous optic neuropathy as well as participated in retinoblastoma research.

She enjoys the opportunity to help her patients achieve the best possible vision, whether through performing cataract surgery, managing dry eye, monitoring eye conditions associated with diabetes, or treating glaucoma. 

In her free time she enjoys outdoor activities including running, disc golfing, gardening, baking, and spending time with her husband and two children.
