Get to Know Me

What are some of the specific conditions you treat?

Cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic eye disease, dry eyes, inflammatory eye disease (uveitis), eye infections and trauma.

What techniques or procedures do you use in your practice?

Optical coherence tomography; advanced fundus (retinal and optic nerve) photography, including stereoscoping imaging and autofluorescence; visual field testing; corneal topography; and optical biometry.

We have a YAG laser for treating certain forms of glaucoma and posterior capsular fibrosis (a film which can form behind the lens implant following cataract surgery).

What would you like patients to know about your approach to care?

I take a truly comprehensive approach to eye care, approaching each patient as a unique individual with their own visual needs based on their lifestyle, work and interests.  Some visual needs include distance vision correction, near/immediate vision correction and surgical correction of astigmatism.

As a cataract surgeon, I perform "no needle, no stitch" cataract surgery at the Luckow Pavilion.

We are fortunate to have the latest ophthalmic diagnostic equpiment in our office for delivering high-quality care.
