Sandra A. Young, OD is an optometrist with a special interest in nutrition and vision. After earning her
Doctor of Optometry degree from Pacific University, College of Optometry, she began her career in private
practice and military medical facilities.
Inspired by compelling research on nutrition, vision and the amelioration of eye disease, Dr. Young began
bringing landmark studies such as AREDS2 and ONIT into the kitchen. Several common eye diseases such as
Age-related Macular Degeneration and Dry
Eye, in many cases have nutritional and inflammatory components. Blending her exceptional cooking skills
with current ocular science, the eight time award-winning author wrote Visionary Kitchen: A Cookbook for Eye
Health and Heal Your Dry
Eyes: Nutrition & Recipes
Dr. Young has written articles for Discovery Eye Foundation, CooperVision and ZeaVision. Her recipes have
been featured in Mother Earth Living, Environmental Nutrition and the Colorado Springs Gazette and even a
live cooking demonstration on Fox 21 News.
Dr. Young is convinced that healthful meals the entire family will enjoy can be prepared with exceptional
taste while supporting ocular health.
