Dr. Dara Zirofsky
Diplomate, American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists

Dr. Zirofsky is originally from New York but she has traveled the country obtaining advanced training in ophthalmology.  She received her Bachelor of Arts degree with Honors from Brown University in Rhode Island, followed by her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from the University of California-Davis.  She completed a rotating small animal internship, and then an ophthalmology internship at Red Bank Veterinary Hospital in New Jersey, before being accepted into an ophthalmology residency program at Colorado State University where she also earned a Master of Science degree for her two graduate projects pertaining to feline conjunctivitis and canine glaucoma.


When not in the clinic, she is most likely rock climbing, hiking, or pursuing any activity that keeps her in the great outdoors. Her dog Jack, an Australian Shepherd, came to her as a blind rescue dog and he has been incredibly loving and inspirational.  She also has a guinea pig named Papua.
