About

Bio

I have been in active clinical practice in southcentral Pennsylvania for 30 years. My primary clinical activites center around glaucoma evaluations and treatment, cataract evaluations and treatment including premium implants, comprehensive ophthalmic care, ocular surface disease or dry eye syndrome and, of course, emergency eye care. I am associated with a group practice with an ophthalmologist and three optometrists. We have a very nice optical shop with many high fashion frames in addition to regular frames. We are conveniently located in Mechanicsburg, Pa. I grew up in Mechanicsburg and it is so nice to be in my home town to practice all these years. I have a lovely wife, Hollyanne, and seven children.

Specialties
