Welcome Drs. Moody and Maglione to TEI


The Eye Institute of Salus University welcomes Drs. Ashley Maglione and Kelsey Moody as full-time optometrists in the Primary Care and Neuro-Ophthalmic Disease Services at the Oak Lane, East Falls and Chestnut Hill locations. In addition to seeing patients at TEI, they will also be involved in teaching laboratory courses at Salus University Pennsylvania College of Optometry (PCO) in Head & Neck Anatomy, Neuro-Anatomy, and Neuro-Ophthalmic Disease, and guest lecturing in content areas specific to these courses.

Drs. Maglione and Moody were a part of the inaugural Neuro-ophthalmic Disease two-year residency program at PCO and TEI, which they completed in 2017 under the mentorship of Drs. Kelly Malloy and Erin Draper. The Neuro-ophthalmic Disease residency was the first of its kind in the nation.

Dr. Maglione earned her Doctor of Optometry degree from PCO in 2015 and holds a bachelor’s degree in biology from The College of New Jersey. Throughout her residency, Dr. Maglione taught students and saw patients in both the Primary Care/Ocular Disease and Neuro-Ophthalmic Disease Services. In addition to presenting several scholarly works, she is also a Special Interest Group member of the American Academy of Optometry’s Neuro-Ophthalmic Disorders and a member of the American Optometric Association.

Dr. Moody similarly taught students and saw patients in both the Primary Care/Ocular Disease and Neuro-Ophthalmic Disease services and presented several scholarly works during her two-year residency. She earned her Doctor of Optometry degree from PCO in 2015 and her bachelor’s degree in biology from Florida State University in 2011. She is a Special Interest Group member of the American Academy of Optometry’s Neuro-Ophthalmic Disorders in addition to being a member of the American Optometric Association.

Dr. Melissa Trego, dean of PCO, happily announced the two new hires’ positions in communication to the Salus/PCO community.

“TEI and PCO are fortunate that Drs. Moody and Maglione will continue to serve as instructors both clinically and didactically for our students and residents,” she wrote. “Please join me in warmly welcoming her to the TEI/PCO family.”
