2023 40 Under 40: Candice Frazier

NeoLight LLC

Posted online

Candice Frazier’s work in the field of neonatal eye imaging brings her face to face with the smallest of eyes.

A senior clinical specialist with NeoLight, Frazier, 37, works to bring together neonatal intensive care professionals with the ophthalmic community and provide learning materials on infant eye health.

“I’ve learned that health care in its entirety is a collaboration of several specialties,” she says.

Frazier says she found an overwhelming need for educational materials on screening for retinopathy, which can cause vision loss in preemies. She created a toolkit that became the start of a worldwide outreach.

In 2022, Frazier traveled to Italy to work with neonatal eye imagers from around the world. Her research on eye imaging has appeared in several medical journals.

Best productivity hack? An app called TimeTree. I keep color-coded calendars and lists for all five in our household.

Best piece of advice you’ve ever received? My late boss and friend, Linda Fuggiti, guided me to write out my thoughts and rest on them for a day before creating any plan of action.

Best celebrity meeting/sighting story? I was recently presented a clinical excellence award at my company’s annual meeting. I was shocked that Ben Roethlisberger was the one to hand out my award. My boys were pretty jealous!

Favorite food item to order in the Springfield area? The pastries from European Cafe.
