She specializes in the medical and surgical management of retinal diseases including diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, retinal vascular occlusions, retinal detachments, macular holes, tumors, and cataract complications.
A native to Baltimore; Dr. Schocket graduated cum laude from Bryn Mawr High School. After graduating magna cum laude from Brown University, she spent a year performing research at the National Institutes of Health. She then earned her medical degree at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Schocket attended residency at the University of Pennsylvania/ Scheie Eye Institute. After residency, Dr. Schocket completed a surgical retina fellowship at Tufts University/ Ophthalmic Consultants of Boston. In 2005, she joined a private practice group in the community while also working at University of Maryland teaching residents and serving on the Clinical Faculty. Over 9 years, Dr. Schocket developed a large clinical practice in Baltimore and the surrounding suburbs. In 2014, Dr. Schocket joined the Department of Ophthalmology full-time as Associate Professor.

Dr. Schocket has been actively involved in research throughout her career. Her work has appeared in journals such as Ophthalmology, Archives of Ophthalmology, American Journal of Ophthalmology, and Retina. She also wrote the chapter in the American Academy of Ophthalmology's Focal Points on choroidal melanoma. Dr. Schocket has presented her research at both national and international meetings. She has served as Sub-Investigator in multiple large clinical trials.
Dr. Schocket is currently accepting new patients in the following locations: University of Maryland Professional Building, McDonogh Crossroads, Glen Burnie, and Good Samaritan Hospital.
