Curing Blindness, One Patient at a Timeophthalmologist west springfield | Eye and Lasik Center

“I always wanted to make the world a better place. So, for many years, I practiced medicine with the best doctors at one of the biggest institutions. There, we worked tirelessly to develop new treatments and train the next generation of doctors. We tackled the most important eye diseases. We even had a mantra “curing blindness 1 million patients at a time.” What I missed during all of those years was the one patient, the individualized treatment plan that was the exception to the rule, and the connection to the community that comes from caring for families. I am eager to earn your trust as we work together to cure your eye condition and to show you that you are so much more than a component of the population.”
