Kristina Tarczy-Hornoch, M.D., Ph.D., M.S., is a board certified ophthalmologist, chief of Ophthalmology at Seattle Children’s Hospital and a UW professor of Ophthalmology.

Dr. Tarczy-Hornoch believes that caring for children means caring for the whole family. Parents will do everything possible to help their children, but can sometimes feel overwhelmed by the decisions they face, especially when there is not just one right answer. One of the most rewarding experiences for a physician is being able to teach families and empower them to make informed decisions about a child’s care.

Dr. Tarczy-Hornoch earned her M.D. from UC San Francisco, her Ph.D. from Oxford and her M.S. from USC. Her clinical and research interests focus on disorders that affect visual development in children.

Personal Interests

Dr. Tarczy-Hornoch lives in Seattle, Washington, with her husband and son. Her pastimes include spending time with family, music, reading, print-making and cross-country skiing.
