Dr. Shurbet specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of ocular disease, contact lenses, and laser refractive surgery management.
Dr. Shurbet first became interested in the field of optometry when she began wearing contact lenses in seventh grade, and worked part time for an optometrist while in college. She graduated Cum Laude from Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, Texas with a major in Biological Sciences and a minor in Biochemistry. Dr. Shurbet was also a collegiate athlete softball pitcher for the Hardin-Simmons softball team.

Dr. Shurbet is excited to join the elite group of doctors and surgeons at Kleiman Evangelista Eye Centers with locations in Arlington, Dallas and Plano. Dr. Shurbet will be available to provide patient care at all three locations.
What attracted her to partnering at Kleiman Evangelista Eye Centers was the emphasis on superior patient care and up-to-date medical treatment. “I wanted to work with an eye care practice that was combining leading-edge research and advanced technology to perform the most innovative procedures in our field,” she said, “Kleiman | Evangelista certainly fits that bill. I love the environment of continual learning.”
