ophthalmologist west springfield | Eye and Lasik CenterInspired from a young age

I became interested in Ophthalmology at a young age as the son of a sight impaired father.  My father, experienced a rare eye illness called Retinitis Pigmentosa and brought me along to his Ophthalmologist where I observed eye examinations from a young age.  I was impressed with the technological tools used not only to diagnose eye disease but the overall health of a patient.

Today, Ophthalmologists can do so much more for our patients than we could in my father’s time.  There has been a revolution in technology with earlier diagnosis and treatment for a variety of eye conditions that has benefited our patients.  I am grateful to bring my experience and knowledge to the care of Eye & Lasik Center patients particularly in my area of specialty, glaucoma.
