About Dr. Xueying (Sharon) Yang- 杨雪莹
Who I am
Dr. Yang was born in Beijing, China. She immigrated overseas when she was 4 years old. She has lived in England and Canada before finally settling in the Bay Area. She grew up in the heart of Cupertino attending both Miller Middle School and Lynbrook High School.

She enjoys nature exploring with her pet Golden Retriever. Dr. Yang is fluent in Mandarin Chinese, English, proficient in French and able to conduct Spanish eye exams.
Where I Trained
Dr. Yang received her Doctorate of Optometry from the University of California-Berkeley. She also attended undergraduate at CAL, receiving a Bachelors of Science for Nutritional Sciences Physiology and Metabolism. Throughout optometry school, she was a graduate student instructor teaching human anatomy and physiology labs. She participated in Dean Levi's research lab, investigating the role of video games in helping ameliorate vision in adults with amblyopia. Dr. Yang belonged to the Beta Sigma Kappa Honor society all four years. She participated on a VOSH ( Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity) trip, that lead her to serve the underserved people in the rural mountainous regions of Fujian, China. She has extensive training on her external fourth year rotations at the Miami VA and San Francisco VA where she saw a multitude of eye diseases.
My Scope of Practice
Dr. Yang is dedicated to serving your visual needs in helping you find the most optimal solution for clear and comfortable vision to enjoy your lifestyle. She practices full-scope family optometry and particularly enjoys seeing the pediatric populations. She is TLG certified to treat and manage glaucoma as well as other eye diseases such as macular degeneration as well as dry eye treatment. Dr. Yang also treats ocular emergencies such as red eyes as well. She co-manages with ophthalmologists for pre and post Lasik and cataract surgery patients as well as doing testing for computer vision and safety glasses.
Dr. Yang has particular interest in offering services for myopia control by fitting hard CRT/ Orthokeratology contact lenses or the option of soft multifocal lenses in adjunct with atropine eye drops to control myopia progression. It is her mission to help delay the progression and early onset of myopia in present day children. It is very rewarding for her to see children have instantly clearer vision the next day after Orthokeratology treatment. She has many successful happy Ortho-K children and even a few adult patients who see the world clearer without glasses post treatment . Their prescriptions have a wide variety of range from low to high nearsightedness and astigmatism. She enjoys the challenges of fitting hybrid and scleral lenses for patients who have dry eyes, high prescriptions, larger amounts of astigmatism and irregular corneas such patients with Keratoconus. She aspires to help these patients attain sharper vision which is normally not achievable through regular glasses or soft contact lenses. Dr. Yang's goal is to enable everyone to have healthy clear vision to enjoy one's own lifestyle.
Currently, Dr. Yang is a member of the American Optometric Association (AOA), the California Optometric Association (COA) and member of the Santa Clara County Optometric Society (SCCOS). She volunteers on her free time for vision screenings at local schools. Dr. Yang is welcoming new patients and looking forward to seeing existing patients at the clinic.
