I started my practice from "scratch" in 1992 after completing my ophthalmology residency. My practice is in Avon, IN near where my wife grew up. To date I have performed nearly 10,000 cataract surgeries on patients here locally within Hendricks county. I was in the first group of ophthalmologists from Indiana to be certified on the use of the eximer laser (LASIK, PRK) in December, 1996. I was the first ophthalmologist in Indiana and in the US (after the FDA approval) to be certified in the use of the iStent, the first FDA approved MIGS device to treat glaucoma at the time of cataract surgery. I was the first ophthalmologist in the greater central Indianapolis area to be certified in the latest technique of cataract surgery, the LenSx femtosecond LASER.
