Owner/Founder Optometric Physician - Lic. #27OA00588800

Dr. Sally Halim (Lic. # 27OA000588800) grew up in Woodstown, NJ graduating 10th in her class from Woodstown High School. She went on to obtain a B.A. in Biology from Rutgers University. After college, Dr. Halim attended the Pennsylvania College of Optometry (PCO) where she earned a B.S. in Optical Sciences as well as her Doctorate of Optometry. During her training at PCO, Dr. Halim earned clinical honors at the world renowned Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Miami, FL. Throughout her career, Dr. Halim has always practiced optometry at the highest level as an optometric physician. She prescribes both topical (drops) as well as oral medications to treat various ocular conditions. The type of evaluation and treatment you will receive from Dr. Halim is both extensive and thorough. She treats and manages conjunctivitis (red eye), ocular Herpes infections, glaucoma, and foreign body removals just to name a few. She also co-manages patients who undergo surgery for conditions such as LASIK, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration with many local ophthalmologists. Dr. Halim sees patients ranging in age from 6 months to geriatrics. She is a member of the New Jersey Society of Optometric Physicians and the American Optometric Society.

As a resident of Woolwich, Dr. Halim is a big advocate of community involvement. Village Eyecare contributes eye wear vouchers and monetary donations to several local charities and fund raising events throughout the year.   In 2012, Dr. Halim began the Mission for Vision program with area school nurses to provide an eye exam and a pair of glasses for students in need. The program has been both rewarding and gratifying for everyone involved.

In her spare time, Dr. Halim likes to stay active. Over the years, she has competed in dozens of 5Ks, 10Ks, half marathons, full marathons, and triathlons, including a few half iron-mans (70.3 miles). She continues to train and has her sights set on competing in the full iron-man (140.6 miles) at Lake Placid some day.

Dr. Halim also enjoys traveling and spending time with her family. She and her husband, Stephen Kado, an electrical engineer, reside in Woolwich, NJ. The couple have two children; a son named Benjamin (8) and a daughter named Lillian (5).

Here at Village Eyecare we have implemented some new protocols to ensure the highest sanitization standards are met when patients come to our office.  Our new protocols have been developed based on the guidelines of the CDC (Center for Disease Control), the DOF (Department of Health), and the AOA (American Optometric Association). Our new safety measures are detailed below:

1. Individuals with symptoms of COVID-19, living with someone who has symptoms, has been in contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19, or who has traveled outside of US within the last 14 days cannot be scheduled for an examination.

2. A sanitized wipe will be available to use upon opening the main door of the practice as well as the restroom.

3. Hand sanitizer will be available at the foyer and must be used by anyone entering the office.

4. Anyone entering the office over age 10, including patients and guardians, must wear a mask.

5. All patients and guardians will have their temperatures taken and asked a COVID-19 questionnaire at check in. Individuals with a fever over 100.4 or higher will be asked to leave the office immediately for a period of 14 days.

6. Social distancing will be implemented in the reception area and optical. Patients must come to their appointments alone unless they are a minor (18 or younger) or cannot physically attend the appointment unattended. Those who are not being examined (or accompanying a patient being examined as in the aforementioned scenarios), or selecting eyewear, will be asked to remain outside of the office.

7. Dilation with eye drops will be done based on the doctor’s discretion in attempt to limit the proximity of the doctor to the patient.

8. Our office will continue to mail all contact lenses to patients’ homes to limit the number of individuals in the office at once.

9. Infection control procedures will be updated and posted. Procedures include disinfecting touch points such as eyeglass frames, counter tops, chairs and examination equipment at the beginning of day, in between patients, and at the end of the day.

10. All doctors and staff will always wear masks and/or face shields. All Village Eyecare employees will be screened for COVID-19 and have their temperatures recorded twice a day. Those who display a fever of 100.4 or higher, will be asked to leave the office immediately for a period of 14 days.

We realize these changes will greatly affect all of you as patients and we appreciate your cooperation in navigating through these changes. Our goal is to keep our doctors, staff and patients as safe as possible, while still providing the highest quality care. Moving forward, we are excited to be back in the office and seeing all of you again.
