Welcome to Makar Eyecare Dr. Elizabeth Lane is a board certified Optometric Physician. She received her Bachelor of Vision Science from Ferris State University and her doctorate from Michigan College of Optometry in Big Rapids, Michigan. She is a member of the American Optometric Association and the International Optometric Honor Society Sigma Beta Kappa. While in optometry school, Dr. Lane was awarded the Daniel Peterson Memorial Leadership Award and the Acuvue Eye Health Advisor Citizenship Scholarship. She was the President of the Michigan Optometric Student Association and a member of the American Public Health Association and the Michigan VOSH (Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity) group. She has also traveled to Guyana and Latvia on eyecare missions to provide care to those less fortunate.
In addition to her ability to provide family eyecare for individuals of all ages, she brings unique skills to Makar Eyecare for those patients that have severely reduced vision from disease or injury. She has received specific training in this area of eyecare known as “low vision” therapy. Makar Eyecare is delighted to provide this care to patients. For some, it is a final opportunity to enjoy functional vision. Dr Lane’s communication skills, education and experience have allowed her the opportunity to give continuing education presentations to students and doctors at both local and statewide levels in Michigan.
Dr. Lane was an all state track and field athlete during all four years of high school and continues to run today. She also had an opportunity to play on the Ferris State Club Rugby Team during her undergraduate studies. In her free time, Elizabeth enjoys traveling, fishing, and snowboarding. She is the youngest of three siblings and the daughter of educators, Richard and Janet Lane, who are now happily retired in Bradenton, Florida.
