Caring Comprehensive Eye Care
Our eyes truly are windows to the overall health of our bodies. From treatment of common conditions of dry eyes, allergic conjunctivitis and blepharitis to identifying systemic illnesses that first manifest as ocular problems, I appreciate the opportunity to care for the total wellness of my patients through caring for their eyes.
Bringing Advances in Glaucoma care to Our Patients
Glaucoma management has advanced significantly over the last twenty-five years. New classes of medications targeting specific causes of intraocular pressure elevation and neuroprotection, innovative use of laser technology, and micro-invasive surgical interventions have expanded our ability to protect our patients’ optic nerves and preserve their vision. As a fellowship-trained glaucoma specialist, I am excited to offer state of the art treatment to my patients.
Partnering with patient through Communication
Glaucoma, like many common eye disorders I treat, is a chronic disease and the most effective way to care for patients with glaucoma is to partner with them in its management. By listening to patient’s needs and concerns, I am able to tailor treatment to help preserve their vision and improve their quality of life.
