About Me

Glaucoma is my specialty within ophthalmology. Over the years, I have seen a variety of patients from diverse backgrounds and cultures. This gives me a unique perspective. My glaucoma patients are why I decided to specialize in glaucoma. I saw them often and developed a strong bond.
Although there isn't a cure, glaucoma can be managed very well.
This is a very exciting and innovative time in glaucoma. The development of minimally invasive glaucoma surgery has opened up many new options to treating glaucoma, several of which can be done during cataract surgery. We can discuss if you are a candidate for these procedures.
I'm concerned about each patient as a person and with their overall medical health. I give each patient my utmost attention. I also believe in educating my patients and really making them a part of their healthcare management. We work together as a team.
It's great to be a part of Ohio State. It is an amazing academic institution. We're always striving to develop new techniques to better understand and manage different types of glaucoma.

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 03/28/2017, Dr. Fleming has reported no financial relationships with medical device, research and/or drug companies.
