It’s an honor and privilege to be trusted by a patient to help protect their vision. During every patient visit, I ensure they receive the highest level of my attention and the evidenced-based quality care that they deserve. I get to know my patients, which allows me to recommend the best medical treatments that fit into their lifestyle, not only based on the most up-to-date information but also the latest surgical advances.
I specialize in comprehensive ophthalmology, including cataract surgery, laser cataract surgery, medical management of glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration and other eye conditions.
To me, The Ohio State University has always been the standard for high quality and excellence, all across the board. Although I enjoyed being in private practice for almost 10 years, working at Ohio State connects me to the very best in collaboration in education, research and clinical-based outcomes. I’m honored to be a part of changing health care with a dynamic team.
In my free time, I enjoy traveling, spending time with friends and family, watching and playing sports, and being a fan of all things Ohio State. Go Bucks!

Consulting and Related Relationships
At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
As of 11/21/2019, Dr. Ford has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
