Meet the Doctor

Dr Sarah

Sarah Khodadadeh, MD


Yale Fellowship Trained & Board Certified

Ophthalmologist and Surgeon

Dr. Khodadadeh was born and raised in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. From a very early age, Dr. Khodadadeh knew she wanted to help people. Her love of helping patients began when she would frequently be at her father’s side at his Dental and Oral Surgery clinic after school and on weekends. She then started volunteering in local hospitals and clinics at the age of 14, which helped her appreciate different fields of medicine, how they all impact each other, and how important it is to patients that doctors communicate well with their patients and other doctors regarding their care.

After obtaining her undergraduate degree in Microbiology from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Dr. Khodadadeh wanted a better scientific understanding of medical conditions. She obtained a Masters of Medical Sciences and researched treatments for breast cancer, diabetes, and multiple sclerosis at the Institute of Environmental Health Sciences in Detroit.

While she enjoyed learning more about the science behind medical conditions, her love for patient care took her back to Medical School where she obtained her Medical Doctorate (MD) from Wayne State University. She fell in love with Ophthalmology while on rotation as a medical student, seeing how patients valued their eyesight more than any other sense. She knew she was destined to improve and preserve eyesight for patients as a lifetime career.

After completing her residency training, she developed her cataract surgery skills in private practice for 2 years before returning to complete her glaucoma fellowship at Yale University. While at Yale, she taught residents general ophthalmology and cataract surgery as a Clinical Instructor and focused on treating cataract and glaucoma patients with combination procedures to potentially avoid additional surgery.

She moved to Vero Beach in 2014 and worked in a group practice for 8 years before opening her own practice. She is excited to be able to provide more personalized care to patients and treat eye conditions to help patients maintain their lifestyles. Her goal is to improve and preserve and maintain good sight for all her patients.

Her network of physician referrals spans nationally and internationally, with patients traveling across the country for her personalized level of care.
She is board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology, and holds membership and committee positions in the local and recognized ophthalmology community.
