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 eye diseases. 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. Dr. Friberg started to work at Uptown EyeCare in 2007 and took over the practice in May of 2008.
As a proud Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry, 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.
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 being involved in their local NW neighborhood, chatting with neighbors, volunteering at Chapman Elementary School, as well as exploring the Pacific NW through hiking and camping. Both also like traveling around the world, skiing, biking, and enjoying all kinds of music and art venues. But most of all, they both love to spend quality time with their fraternal twin daughters, four squeaky guinea pigs and an adorable lionhead bunny.
Dr. Friberg is accepting new patients. She is currently available for appointments on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and some Fridays.
