Kathleen Williamson


Dr. Kathleen Williamson is a board-certified ophthalmologist who specializes in comprehensive ophthalmology. She was born and raised in Lafayette, Indiana. As the youngest daughter of Dr. Robert Williamson, she was exposed to Ophthalmology from a young age and spent her summers in high school working at the Williamson Eye Institute. She received her medical degree with distinction from Indiana University in 2011 and completed an internship at the Providence Portland Medical Center in Portland, Oregon. Dr. Williamson completed her residency training in Ophthalmology at the University of Washington in Seattle, finishing in 2015. There she gained a wide breadth and depth of medical and surgical ophthalmic experience. After residency, Dr. Williamson and her new husband moved back to Lafayette, and she joined the Williamson Eye Institute, working there for 6 years prior to merging with Eye Surgeons of Indiana. She is thrilled to have joined the Eye Surgeons of Indiana team and to continue serving patients in her hometown.

Dr. Williamson met her husband, Dr. Aaron Villarreal, in medical school. He is a board-certified Internist and works as a hospitalist at IU Arnett Hospital in Lafayette, IN. They had their son, Kai, in June 2019. He brings so much joy and keeps them very busy! In her free time, Dr. Williamson is an avid cook and baker and has particular interest in nutrition. She loves to get outside whenever possible, hike the local and regional trails, garden, meditate, and travel.
