Raised in Puerto Rico, Dr. Hernandez comes from a background of medical professionals, “Since I was a little girl I knew I was going to be in the medical field. Not until I had the opportunity to visit the optometry school in Puerto Rico (due to eye trauma) did I realize that was my calling. I was fascinated!” Dr. Hernandez attended the University of Puerto Rico where she did her Associate Degree in Science. Later, moving to North Eastern State University in Oklahoma where she completed her Bachelor of Science and her Optometry degree in 1995.
After graduation, Dr. Hernandez spent the first few years of her career completing multiple clinical internships. She has written multiple publications and wrote her first award winning book, My Spanish Speaking Patient that has provided her with the opportunity to travel around the United States and Latin America. When deciding where to begin her career, Texas was her first choice.
In 1999 she opened her practice Vision Source-Garland. She chose the Vision Source Network for their high standards and belief that doctors learn from each other and strengthens each other’s skill. She belongs to many medical and optometric societies. She currently maintains membership in TOA, American Optometric Association (AOA) and North Texas Latin American Physician Association.
She is fluent in English and Spanish. She enjoys traveling and Yoga. Above all her accomplishments, her greatest honor has been being a mother to her two daughters Caly and Camille.
