About

Bio

I love the practice of ophthalmology and really enjoy helping patients with vision problems and diseases of the eye to see clearly once again through the miracle of modern medical technology. Being at the very forefront of eye research, particularly when it comes to sight restoring operations using the very latest technology and lasers is what I live for and have dedicated my life toward.
