At the age of 10, Dr. Lorenzana emigrated from Bogota, Colombia to the United States. Although a high-achieving student, she struggled with reading, which led her to believe that it was due to English being her second language. Her determination to be the first in her family to graduate from college earned her a B.S. from Mundelein College but it was perseverance and vision therapy that got her a Doctorate from the Illinois College of Optometry.
The diagnosis and treatment of convergence insufficiency was pivotal to her success in optometry school and proved to be the cause for her lifelong reading struggles. It was then that, Dr. Lorenzana chose the specialty of Vision Learning Disabilities as the focus of her life work and went on to complete a Residency in Pediatrics – Binocular Vision and Perception at the Illinois Eye Institute.
In 2003, Dr. Lorenzana established Advanced Vision Center where she serves as Director for Pediatric and Adult Specialty Optometric Services.
