Philosophy of Care
I strive to provide high quality, experienced, and compassionate care in the field of pediatric ophthalmology and adult strabismus.
I thoroughly enjoy my pediatric patients and their families. I know parents are especially concerned to give their children a great start for a life of healthy vision, well aligned eye movements and excellent depth perception. I am highly experienced in all aspects of pediatric ophthalmology, especially amblyopia and strabismus treatment, including surgery.
My adult strabismus patients often have a history of double vision, eye strain, head positions with neck problems, headaches, and difficulty maintaining focus and attention at work or at home. Some patients experience awkward social interactions when family, colleagues, or other people are not sure if the patients is looking at or talking to them. Many of these patients need strabismus surgery but thought only children could benefit from surgery -- a common myth. I find it extremely rewarding to help my adult patients with their strabismus, double vision, and other vision problems, and have decades of experience with adult strabismus surgery.
