She continued her studies at the Pennsylvania College of Optometry in Philadelphia where she graduated in the top 10 of her 1996 class. She is certified by the American Board of Optometry. This certification requires that Dr. Cuthbertson maintain more clinical education and submit to advanced testing that is above and beyond what is required by the Pennsylvania Board of Optometry. She has been practicing in the Erie area for 22 years. She bought her own practice, Family Eye Care, in June 2014.
