I'm an ophthalmologist with expertise in glaucoma treatment and research. I have enjoyed working at Ohio State for more than 35 years. We're leaders in personalized patient care.
I'm excited about current diagnosis and treatment advances. We can detect glaucoma earlier and monitor more closely for glaucoma progression. We have the most up-to-date laser and surgical procedures to control eye pressure. New monitoring technology and treatments enhance our ability to preserve vision.
In addition, we're involved in clinical and research studies. Our studies of the biomechanical properties of the eye wall can show why certain people develop glaucoma, leading to better and earlier diagnosis and treatment.
My patients are especially rewarding. I'm inspired by how they overcome challenges. I once operated on a 3-month-old girl for congenital glaucoma. I saw her again when she was 16. Her mother said, "Aren't you going to show him?" She pulled out her driver’s license, hugged me and thanked me for being able to drive as a result of that surgery.
I always take time to tell patients what's going on with their eyes and what options are available. I care about their vision and about them as individuals. I treat them as I'd want to be treated.

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.
