Dr. Janoff is a 1986 graduate of the New England College of Optometry, and earned a certificate of Residency from the Brockton, Massachusetts Veterans Administration Medical Center, a hospital-based residency program that included advanced contact lens experience. Following her residency, she worked abroad at the Hadassah Hospital, Jerusalem, Israel. Dr. Janoff returned to the Boston area as the proprietor of an independent practice with emphasis in contact lenses. She has been providing clinical instruction at the Nova Southeastern University College of Optometry since 1995, and has been the Chief of Service and Externship Director in Cornea and Contact Lens since1996.

Throughout Dr. Janoff's career she has participated in contact lens related clinical research, most recently as principal investigator of a study on tear protein adhesion to contact lenses. As co-investigator on the Collaborative Longitudinal Evaluation of Keratoconus (CLEK) Study, she co-authored a publication in Optometry and Vision Science on “Rigid Contact Lens Fitting Relationships in Keratoconus” (October, 1999). For the American Academy of Optometry she presented scientific posters on her unique keratoconic lens designs, specifically “A Piggy-Back Lens Design: Mimicking a Hybrid Lens” (December, 1998), and “Merging Aspheric and Spherical GP Lens Designs for the Keratoconic Presbyope” (December, 2003).

Additionally, she presented lectures on specialty contact lens fitting to optometry and ophthalmology students, residents and physicians, providing continuing education at various venues including a correspondence course published in Eye Care Review entitled “Corneal Complications of Human T-Cell Lymphotrophic Virus-1 in the Differential Diagnosis of Keratoconus” (December, 2008), and a “how to” article published in Review of Optometry entitled “Simplify Fitting GP Lenses for KC and Other Ectasias” (March, 2010).
