About

Bio

My training is in both pediatrics and ophthalmology with a fellowship in pediatric ophthalmology. Currently, I am a pediatric ophthalmologist at Oregon Health and Science University/Casey Eye Institute where I serve as the Director of the Elks Children's Eye Clinic. I am interested in international pediatric ophthalmology development with trips to Ecuador, Malawi, Bhutan and Nepal.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

18 to 21 years old: A person's eye must have a stable refraction/prescription before refactive surgery, regardless of age. Children have growing and changing prescriptions until adulthood, generally stable by 18 to 21 years of age.

Unlikely: Blindness from strabismus surgery is a rare and unlikely complication. Statistically, it is probably more dangerous to drive in a car for the surgery than to have the anesthesia and surgery for most people.
A 36-year-old member asked:

Yes: Strabismus is eye misalignment. There is no particular limit in age for treatment.
