Biography - Martha A. Howard, MD

Martha Howard, MD, is a pediatric ophthalmologist who cares for children and adults with a variety of disorders, including amblyopia, strabismus, congenital eye abnormalities, genetic disorders, eyelid capillary hemangiomas, dermoid cysts, blocked tear ducts, and diplopia. She is skilled in the surgical correction of strabismus in children, and treats adults with strabismus with prisms or surgery using adjustable sutures.            

“All disease processes affect an entire family, not just the patient,” Dr. Howard says, adding that her favorite part of eye care is getting to know patients and their families over a long period of time, and caring for people from premature infants to adults in their 90s “It’s fun to work with children and to also help adults regain their independence by treating conditions like debilitating diplopia with nonsurgical and surgical solutions,” she says.

Dr. Howard takes time to listen to each new patient, answer their questions, and respond to concerns so they are knowledgeable about the condition being treated.  

In addition to her clinical practice, she serves on the executive board of the Connecticut Society of Eye Physicians and is a liaison for the Status of Women in Medicine at the Yale School of Medicine. She believes educating the next generation of physicians is as important as clinical practice, and taught Yale medical students as well as Yale ophthalmology residents at the Cornell Scott-Hill Health Center for many years before joining the department faculty.
