About Me

I am an eye doctor whose practice and research focuses on glaucoma and the brain. As a doctor and a scientist, I am able to conduct my research and then use the findings to help others. When treating patients, my first step is to try and get to know them as a person. This includes learning their entire medical history, not just their eye trouble. This process can sometimes take many visits, since it requires obtaining records and conducting tests so we can obtain complete knowledge of the patient’s health. After I come up with a treatment plan, I feel that it is important to explain the plan to the patient and answer their questions. Many parts of my job are rewarding, but it is especially satisfying when I can make an impact in someone’s life by preventing vision loss or restoring their vision.

Clinical Focus and Research

My Research Interests

As a clinician, I am always thinking of how to apply scientific discovery toward improving our understanding of diseases and helping patients. We are continuing to learn more about glaucoma. It turns out glaucoma is not just a disease caused by high eye pressure. Rather, it is a degenerative disease of the brain, similar to Alzheimer’s disease or Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS). Glaucoma is caused when patients lose brain cells involved in vision. I hope to develop new methods to stop the cells from dying and replace the cells that have been lost by learning why these brain cells die. In addition to performing clinical research, I am also using the latest imaging technology in the laboratory to answer this research question.
