Biography

Tala Kassm, D.O., is a board certified ophthalmologist sub-specializing in the treatment of glaucoma and cataracts. She joined the Department of Ophthalmology at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) in 2018 as a glaucoma fellow following her residency, and has decided to continue her career as one of the attending physicians on faculty as well as assistant professor.

In her first year at MUSC, Dr. Kassm created and led the Glaucoma Support Group at the Storm Eye Institute as she has a passion for well-rounded patient care and giving them the opportunity to interact with each other as well as their physician in a relaxed environment.

Prior to joining her colleagues at MUSC, Dr. Kassm earned her medical degree as a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine from A.T. Still University in Arizona. As a medical student, Dr. Kassm received the Outstanding Student Award and the Robert F. Crawford Scholastic Achievement Award, which is only granted to one exceptional student in the graduating class for overall academic and clinical excellence. After obtaining her D.O. degree, she went on to complete her ophthalmology residency training at the University of Louisville School of Medicine in Louisville, Kentucky.

During her residency, she developed a strong interest in educating fellow physicians about ophthalmology and delivered a wide variety of lectures. Dr. Kassm even included various discussions for prospective medical students interested in her field as well as other specialty residencies in basic topics of ophthalmology, how to prepare for the application process, and even innovative imaging modalities.

Dr. Kassm has thoroughly enjoyed dedicating her time and services to many community organizations such as the Storm Eye Sight Organization, West End Boys School Eye Screening Campaign, the Leukocoria Campaign in association with the Children’s Eye Foundation and Kentucky School for the Blind, Home of the Innocence, and Kendall Optometry Ministry, Inc. organizing and sorting glasses for those who cannot afford them. Not only does she have a robust dedication to both patient and physician education, but she also enjoys spending time with each of her patients in order to thoroughly explain their disease and treatment plans. Dr. Kassm is a precisely skilled surgeon who understands the importance of detail in such a field as ophthalmology.
