Dr. Watts  is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma (OU) College of Medicine. She completed her ophthalmology residency at UT Southwestern in Dallas, and practiced in Wichita Falls before moving back to Oklahoma to join the faculty at the Dean McGee Eye Institute (DMEI)/OU Department of Ophthalmology.  Dr. Watts sees adult patients for comprehensive eye care.  Her practice includes evaluation and treatment of eye conditions such as dry eyes, diabetic eye exams, glaucoma, refractive errors, cataracts, and other ocular disorders.

Dr. Watts’ primary role at the Dean McGee Eye Institute is supervising residents and overseeing their care of patients. This educational role is very rewarding and she is grateful for the opportunity to train future ophthalmologists.

Dr. Watts believes serving in the resident clinic is truly one of the best places to practice medicine, as the patient population is diverse and the patients often have significant and challenging medical needs. She has been the recipient of the Edward and Thelma Gaylord Faculty Resident Teaching award in 2002 and 2013. Dr. Watts is a mother of four and is married to Dr. Jeff Watts, a radiologist who is in private practice in Edmond.
