About Me

As an ophthalmologist and corneal specialist, I specialize in medical and surgical care for corneal disease including keratoconus, Fuch’s corneal dystrophies, corneal transplants, corneal cross-linking and cataract surgeries. I find my work very meaningful and love restoring people’s sight. I also have extensive training in LASIK surgery and the treatment of cataracts, dry eye and pterygium.

My research interests include keratoconus, Salzmann’s nodular degeneration, infectious keratitis and conjunctival flap surgery.

My favorite part about working at Ohio State is the variety of patients and conditions that I have the opportunity to treat. I treat routine conditions such as cataracts, as well as complex conditions like corneal transplantation. My colleagues and I work together as a team to care for patients with some of the most challenging eye conditions.

When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my wife and extended family, and rooting for the Buckeyes, of course!
