Patients benefit from her expertise in incisional and laser surgery, which she provides in an outpatient setting, and have the option of being recruited for clinical studies. In the realm of clinical research, Dr. Brauner investigates risk factors related to glaucoma and clinical outcomes of cataract surgery.

Dr. Brauner attended medical school at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and completed her ophthalmology residency at Harvard Medical School, followed by subspecialty training in glaucoma at Mass.
