Personal

My special interests are cataract surgery, cornea and refractive surgery. This includes surgery to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, with procedures such as astigmatic keratotomy, conventional and wavefront Intralase  LASIK , conductive keratoplasty (CK) for presbyopia and hyperopia,  photorefractive keratoplasty (PRK) and Verisyse implants. I also perform small incision, no-stitch cataract surgery With TORIC and Multifocal implants.  I preform corneal DSAEK,  corneal transplantation and corneal Intacs implantation . I am published in cataract and refractive surgery topics and have a research interest in clinical outcome studies. I am married with three children. In my leisure time, I enjoy boating, electronics and aviation.
