About me

Dr. Sun grew up in San Diego, California, and received her Bachelor's from the University of California, Berkeley, and her Ph.D. in Biological Sciences from Stanford University. With the goal of applying scientific innovation to patient care, she subsequently pursued a medical degree at Loyola University Chicago, where her fascination with neural connectivity and love of microsurgery led her to Ophthalmology. After a residency in Ophthalmology at the Medical College of Wisconsin, she completed a subspecialty fellowship in Glaucoma at the University of Michigan. She focuses on the medical and interventional management of glaucoma, and her surgical repertoire include both traditional, time-tested methods as well as the most promising novel minimally-invasive techniques.

In her free time, Dr. Sun enjoys piano, skiing, and iaido. She is fluent in Mandarin Chinese and loves boba and dim sum.
