She recieved an undergraduate degree in Biochemistry from Occidental College and her Doctor of Optometry degree from Pennsylvania College.
Dr. Tsao served an externship at the William Feinbloom Center of the Eye Institute of Philadelphia. There she worked with the latest developments in low vision aids which are used to help patients suffering from macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa, and other visually threatening diseases.
