Dr. Delia Manjoney comes from a family of several physicians, including her father, two uncles and four siblings. This “gives me a different perspective of things,” she says. She graduated magna cum laude from Roanoke College before earning her medical degree from the University of Vermont College of Medicine. She completed her internship and residency in pediatrics at the University of Texas Children’s Medical Center and did a partial fellowship in pediatric cardiology at UCSF before she decided to go into ophthalmology. Ophthalmology is a “nice blend of patient contact, strong interpersonal relationships and surgery,” she says, and “it is very rewarding to be able to restore someone’s vision.”
Dr. Manjoney practiced comprehensive ophthalmology with her father for 15 years before practicing solo. She specializes in cataract surgery, treatment of glaucoma and general ophthalmology. She began to offer cosmetic procedures at the request of some women patients who wanted to look younger and to learn a new application for Botox®, a treatment that ophthalmologists had been using for more than 20 years to treat other disorders of and near the eyes. She also performs blepharoplasty.
She makes sure that she and her patients “come to a consensus about the best options for them” and that patients have “very realistic expectations,” especially about cosmetic procedures. All treatment is highly individualized.
Rated a top doctor in Connecticut Magazine since 2009 and by Castle & Connelly since 1997, she says, “I am honored and humbled to be recognized by my peers and by the support of my patients.” Her education as a physician is never over. “When you stop learning, you stop growing and you’re actually regressing,” she says. “Technology is changing so quickly and so dramatically. You have to learn something new every year.”
