At Modern Eye Care of NJ, our optometrists use their broad & practical experience to offer truly comprehensive eye care. That’s why we’re known for very thorough eye exams, looking at risk factors for eye diseases, helping manage symptoms of dry eye and myopia stabilization, and making sure you get the most accurate vision prescription possible, whether it’s for glasses, contact lenses, or both.

Dr. Jackline Shawki is a TPA/DEA certified optometric physician who has been practicing for 9 years and specializes in vision correction, fitting specialty contact lenses, diagnosing & treating ocular diseases.

Dr. Shawki was inspired since childhood and loves the difference she can make in the lives of patients with challenging or tricky vision problems — in particular, dry eye, which often goes undiagnosed or mistreated. She also loves working with kids and specializes in myopia management (managing nearsightedness) which is very common due to increased screen time.

Dr. Shawki graduated from Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey in 2009 where she majored in Biology. She then went to New England College of Optometry where she graduated in 2013. Her internships included focus on ocular disease, contact lenses, pediatrics, geriatrics and primary care.

When not practicing eye care, Dr. Shawki enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. She loves anything that gets her outdoors especially hiking, jogging and swimming.
