Dr. Madi Sachs is an optometrist who cares for patients of all ages, providing management of eye conditions ranging from amblyopia (sometimes called a "lazy eye") to glaucoma in adults to eye infections. She fits children in contact lenses and offers treatments to control myopia (nearsightedness). To address certain conditions, such as strabismus (eye misalignment) and double vision, she uses detailed measurements of how the eyes work together to develop optimal management plans, which often include prescription prism glasses that help with eye coordination. She conducts dilated eye exams to detect a wide variety of abnormalities, such as congenital cataracts, malformed structures within the eye, and optic nerve disorders. She also provides comprehensive eye exams for children and adults with developmental delay or disability, and believes that early intervention can help children reach their full potential.
Sachs is an investigator in the Pediatric Eye Disease Investigator Group, a collaborative research network of ophthalmologists and optometrists funded by the National Eye Institute. The group runs multicenter clinical trials on treatments for strabismus, amblyopia and other eye disorders affecting children.
Sachs earned her doctor of optometry degree from the Herbert Wertheim School of Optometry & Vision Science at the University of California, Berkeley, where she also completed a residency in pediatric and primary care optometry.
When not at work, Sachs enjoys being active outdoors. She loves road and trail running, biking, skiing, tennis, backpacking and everything in between. Originally from a small town in Minnesota, she has called the Bay Area home since 2018 and loves the diversity of food, people and activities the Golden State has to offer.
