About

Bio

I am board certified in ophthalmology and did a fellowship in eye plastic surgery. My practice is largely centered around ophthalmic plastic surgery. I am a member of ASOPRS( American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery). I specialize in eyelid surgery including cosmetic blepharoplasty, ptosis repair and eyelid reconstruction following tumor removal or trauma . I also specialize in orbital surgery including thyroid eye disease, orbital fracture repair and lacrimal surgery. I am the team ophthalmologist for the Seattle Seahawks and the UW Athletic Department. I served in Iraq in trauma surgery in the summer of 2008. I grew up in Seattle. I went to grade school, high school and college within a few miles of my office. That gives me a sense of pride in serving this community. I enjoy cycling, mountain biking, skiing,hiking, golfing, kayaking, generally enjoying this great part of the country. I am married and have a daughter and a son.

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.

Pinguecula: This is likely a benign growth on the temporal and sometimes nasal limbus ( edge of the cornea). This should be confirmed by an eye doctor.
