About

Bio

D. Alan Chandler M.D. is a Board Certified ophthalmologist (American Board of Ophthalmology) specializing in small incision cataract extraction with lens implant, medical and surgical management of glaucoma, and the diagnosis and treatment of diabetic eye disease. Dr. Chandler implants multifocal intraocular lens implants such as the AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® lens implant and the AMO TECNIS Multifocal IOL. These new lens implants give the potential for the uncorrected vision after cataract surgery to be excellent for both near and distance vision. Dr. Chandler also uses the Alcon toric intraocular lens implant to help correct astigmatism at the time of cataract surgery, and well as performing limbal relaxing incisions to reduce astigmatism.

Specialties
