Jennifer Eikenberry, MD, is an associate professor of clinical ophthalmology for Indiana University School of Medicine. 

She specializes in cataract surgery and the medical management of glaucoma and diabetic eye disease. She has participated in several research studies regarding the treatment of glaucoma and ocular side effects of systemic medications.

A native of Evansville, Indiana, Eikenberry has always been a loyal Hoosier.  

She attended Indiana University—Bloomington for her undergraduate education and IU School of Medicine for her medical degree and residency. As an intern, she worked at IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital in Muncie. She accepted a job with IU School of Medicine as soon as her training was complete.

Teaching is near and dear to her heart because both of her parents were public school teachers. Now, she takes pride in helping teach Indiana’s next generation of doctors.

She hopes the physicians she trains are inspired to be advocates for their patients and move forward in their careers with the same passion and curiosity that first drew them to medicine.
