"It's stating the obvious to say that a person's eyesight is a precious thing. When a patient comes in with a serious problem, I recognize the enormous responsibility that puts on me. I accept it respectfully and approach each case with it top of mind."

Dr. Reilly started her academic training by graduating with a Bachelor of Arts with Honors from New York University. She then received her medical degree from the Penn State College of Medicine and completed her Ophthalmology residency at the University of Maryland where she was honored by serving as the Chief Resident during her senior year. She completed her surgical vitreoretinal fellowship at Georgetown University Hospital-Washington Hospital Center-The Retina Group of Washington.

Having compiled a formidable research resume, Dr. Reilly has been a primary or co-investigator for several ophthalmology, uveitis and psychology papers. She has made poster and paper presentations at The Retina Society, the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), the American Society of Retina Specialists (ASRS), the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) and the North American Neuro-Ophthalmology Society (NANOS). She has received recognition for producing the “Best Research Project” and was awarded a travel grant from the National Eye Institute (NEI).

Dr. Reilly has always maintained an interest in the teaching and educating of residents, first at the University of Maryland and continuing at Georgetown University Hospital/Washington Hospital Center where she was nominated for the Golden Apple Teaching Award as selected by the residents.
