Dr. Christine Buono introduces herself and goes over the conditions that she treats. She briefly gives her background education and training information. The relationships she builds with patients are very important to her.

Christine Speer Buono, M.D. is a board-certified ophthalmologist with expertise in treatment and diagnosis of all medical disorders of the eye, including dry eye, glaucoma, allergic and herpetic eye diseases, eyelid problems, macular degeneration, and diabetic eye disease. She performs eyelid procedures and laser surgery for glaucoma and after cataract surgery.

Dr. Buono is originally from Stuttgart, Arkansas, "the rice and duck capital of the world". Graduating as valedictorian from high school, she received the Arkansas Junior Miss scholarship and the Robert C. Byrd scholarship. For her undergraduate education, she attended Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN. In 1995, she graduated magna cum laude with dual majors in Chemistry and Spanish and was inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa honor society.

Dr. Buono then returned to Little Rock, Arkansas where she studied medicine at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. The eye doctor received the Barton scholarship for three consecutive years. During medical school, she was involved with two publications, "Magnetic resonance diagnosis of congenital hypopituitarism in children with optic nerve hypoplasia" and "Fourth cranial nerve palsy in pediatric patients with pseudotumor cerebri." As a junior medical student, she was elected into Alpha Omega Alpha honor society student and graduated as valedictorian with her medical degree in 1999. She was a recipient of the American Women's Medical Association scholarship award.

In 2000, Dr. Buono completed a transitional internship at Georgetown Hospital/ INOVA Fairfax Hospital in the Washington, DC and northern Virginia areas. She then had the honor of being trained at the world-renowned Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia, PA as an ophthalmology resident. Her outstanding residency afforded her the opportunity to see a vast amount of ocular disease and its medical and surgical treatment while trained by many of the world's finest eye doctors and ophthalmologists. During that time she published the article "An atypical presentation of Acanthamoeba keratitis is a non-contact lens wearer."

After completion of her ophthalmology residency in 2003, Dr. Buono became an Assistant Clinical Professor of Ophthalmology at the Duke University School of Medicine and attending surgeon at Duke University Eye Center where she practiced comprehensive ophthalmology and performed cataract and anterior segment surgery. She also served as an attending surgeon at the Durham Veterans Administration Hospital where she taught and assisted ophthalmology residents with their surgery. She educated medical students, physician's assistants, ophthalmic technicians, and residents through lectures and clinical training while at Duke University Eye Center.

In 2006, Dr. Buono and her family moved to Long Island where she has enjoyed being in private practice on the East End. She had an active cataract surgery practice for 10 years, and now concentrates on medical disorders of the eye as well as minor eyelid procedures and laser surgery for glaucoma and after cataract surgery. She is a member of the medical staff at Southampton Hospital in Southampton, NY, and Eastern Long Island Hospital in Greenport, NY, and is a fellow in the American Academy of Ophthalmologists. She holds memberships in the Suffolk County Ophthalmology Society, New York State Ophthalmological Society, and American Academy of Ophthalmology. Her interests include reading fiction books, playing the piano, cooking, and spending time with her husband, Dr. Lawrence Buono and their two sons.
