Katherine Hill, OD

Specialty Care for Dry Eyes

"I love what I do - I find it very fun and rewarding. I have been fascinated with the eyes and visual system since grade school and have worked in eye clinics for over fifteen years. I enjoy connecting with patients and discussing their eye health. I love explaining the remarkably complex nature of 'dry eyes' and helping patients find relief from their symptoms. With rapidly advancing research and technology in the field of dry eye disease, it's exciting to think about what will be available to us in time. I am grateful to be supported by EMG in staying on the cutting edge through it all - the future is bright!"

Patient Testimonials

  • “I had a really great experience with Dr. Hill and Terry (nurse) at Eyecare Medical Group in Saco! Their new facility, while a bit farther than their Portland office, is gorgeous and has all the equipment needed to evaluate you for chronic dry eye. I was seen immediately after checking in and each eye drop, test, and exam was well explained. I felt like Dr. Hill really listened to my concerns, was respectful, and came up with a good treatment plan for me. I appreciate that she was positive, but also realistic, so I left feeling motivated to implement my new eye health plan. I will be going to Eyecare Medical Group again in four months, and am really happy to continue my eye care with Dr. Hill!”


  • “Dr. Hill, has done some amazing work with my rosacea and dry eye disease. I came to her a couple years ago in so much pain and discomfort. I could not keep my eyes open pass 7pm. Watching TV was almost unbearable. But with following her instructions, some treatment, and medications I can honestly say I have my life back again. No longer have that persistent fatigue, pain, and watering eyes. So grateful, many, many, thanks Dr. Hill.”
