As a proud Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry and owner of Uptown EyeCare since 2008, Dr. Friberg is dedicated to the highest standard of optometric practice and desires to provide the most attentive, yet friendly and comprehensive care to her patients.
Dr. Friberg graduated from UCLA with a B.S. in Physiological Science. After receiving her Doctorate in Optometry from Southern California College of Optometry with Cum Laude and Honors, Dr. Friberg completed an additional year of post-doctoral residency at the Salt Lake City VA Hospital. The mixed clinical environment of the Salt Lake VA and University of Utah Moran Eye Center allowed her to get specialized experience in medical contact lenses and various medical eye conditions. During her clinical rotations, she rotated through the Tucson VA Hospital and Blind Rehabilitation Center and the Indian Health Service Hospital on the Hopi reservation in AZ. She also worked at the Cedar Sinai Medical Group in Beverly Hills, CA working side by side in a co-management ophthalmology practice.
Native to a small country in the heart of Europe – Slovakia, Dr. Friberg grew up playing piano duets with her sister, dancing in folklore ensembles and spending summers in her family’s cottage in the Low Tatra Mountains. She and her husband, an aerospace engineer, moved to Portland from California because they fell in love with the urban feel and accessibility to everything Portland has to offer. They enjoy exploring the Pacific NW through hiking and camping. Both also love traveling around the world, skiing, biking, and enjoying all kinds of music and art venues. Most of all, they both love to spend quality time with their twin daughters, three squeaky guinea pigs, two adorable lionhead bunnies and 5 chickens on their Sauvie Island hobby farm.
Currently, Dr. Friberg is accepting new patients on a limited basis.
