Dr. Alan Jackson
29 years experience male
I graduated from BYU in 1987 with a BS degree in Microbiology. Seeing that there was not much future in this I applied to medical school, graduating from Tulane University Medical school in 1991. I had a great interest in " eyes" mainly because of a n older brother that was a practicing and from other brothers that convinced me that the life style of an orthopedic surgeon was too busy. Three brothers practice orthopedics currently. After a hot summer in Phoenix doing an internship , I was accepted to an ocular pathology program at the University of Utah just before it became the Moran Eye Center. I then completed a residency in Ophthalmology at SUNY at Buffalo. Since this time, 15 years ago, I have been in private practice in a General Ophthalmogy practice. I am happily married with 5 children, two of whom are in college. We spend our time watching basketball, soccer games and enjoying dance concerts. Recently i have been involved the scouting program (BSA) andhave trained many adults how to run an effective program. I do enjoy the outdoors and almost all sports Residency in Buffalo, NY at SUNY, ocular pathology fellowship at the University of Utah under Mick Mamali

Fantastic ophthalmologist! Intelligent, caring answers. I give him my highest recommendation.
Tell me about it. I have seen many specialists. I think I am starting menopause but it is difficult to find a doctor who will believe me because of my age. That is why I turn to HealthTap. Thank you!
This was very helpful. Thanks! Thank u very, very much. I knew that the wrong medication was given. This helped me out and thank you for the help and the conformation.
This was very helpful. Thanks! Very well could be the specialist I'm looking for. What a great idea. Trying to rid wrinkles without botox--droopy eye resulted.
