About Me

I specialize in the medical and surgical management of cataracts and glaucoma. I believe in partnering with my patients to create an optimal, evidence-based treatment plan for each individual. Because glaucoma requires lifelong care, I feel privileged to be a part of the lives of my patients and particularly enjoy getting to know patients and their families as we work together to treat their eye conditions. I have a number of research interests that focus on developing new technologies to diagnose glaucoma as well as developing new ways to measure eye pressure. When not working, I enjoy traveling and spending time with my family, gardening, and cooking.

Clinical Focus and Research

My Research Interests

I have a number of research interests that focus on developing new technologies to diagnose glaucoma as well as developing new ways to measure eye pressure. I have presented my research at many national conferences and received research funding from the American Glaucoma Society and Research to Prevent Blindness. Through my research, I hope to develop ways to detect glaucoma at earlier stages and improve the accuracy of eye pressure measurements, which is crucial to diagnosing and guiding the management of glaucoma.
