Dr. Winges is from the San Francisco Bay Area and earned her undergraduate degree in human biology and astrobiology at Stanford University. During medical school, she pursued a translational research fellowship into the neuro-immunology of multiple sclerosis with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. She developed an interest in ocular imaging of neuro-ophthalmic disease while in ophthalmology residency at UC Davis, which led her to neuro-ophthalmology fellowship at the University of Iowa. She is the recipient of several research awards for presentations at domestic and international conferences.
Dr. Winges joined the Casey Eye Institute faculty at the VA Portland Health Care System. She enjoys juggling her roles as neuro-ophthalmologist, cataract surgeon, and teacher. Her current research involves ocular imaging in demyelinating disease and other optic neuropathies. She serves on committees of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the North American Neuro-Ophthalmology Society, and performs reviews for journals such as Ophthalmology.
In her free time, Dr. Winges enjoys spending time with her family and black lab, exploring the great outdoors of the Pacific Northwest.
