Terria L. Winn, MD
Terria L. Winn, MD is a board certified ophthalmic surgeon specializing in cataract and implant surgery. She is a native Kansan, born in Norton and raised in nearby Colby. Dr. Winn now resides in Wichita where she has been in private practice for more than 20 years. She was the first female eye surgeon in Wichita and was the only female eye surgeon in Wichita for 15 years. She is currently the Medical Director of the Team Vision Surgery Center where she and many of her partners at Grene Vision Group perform eye surgery.
She was one of the first eye surgeons in Wichita to use topical anesthesia, starting in 1996. Her standard surgical technique utilizes eye drops to “numb” the eye and a no stitch, no needle approach, allowing the patient to leave the operating room without a patch and eliminating the need to stop “blood thinners.”
Dr. Winn was the first surgeon in Wichita, and one of the first in Kansas to implant the Acrysof foldable intraocular lens after receiving FDA approval in the mid 1990s. She was also the first in Wichita and the surrounding area to implant the Acyrysof Toric intraocular lens that corrects astigmatism. Dr. Winn was the first surgeon in Wichita and second surgeon in Kansas to implant the new multifocal IOL — Active Focus Multifocal Toric IOL — in June 2017.
She is a graduate of the University of Kansas School of Medicine, receiving the Citation for graduating in the upper 10 percent of her medical school class. Dr. Winn was initiated into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honorary Medical Society while still in her medical school training in Kansas. During the completion of her ophthalmology residency training in Houston, she was voted “The Most Outstanding Third Year Resident” by her peers. She also served as the Chief Resident during her final year of residency.
Aside from being known for her surgical skills in advanced microincision cataract surgery, Dr. Winn is probably best known by her professional peers and patients for her kindness, personal attention, and contagious smile. This validates her practice philosophy, “A Special Kind of Care.”
