Biography

My clinical interest is in the improvement my patient's lives through personalized compassionate care, with an emphasis on preservation and restoration of vision and eye health.

I fulfill this interest through the comprehensive management of a wide variety of eye-related health conditions. These conditions range from highly acute issues like ophthalmic trauma, angle closure, and ocular inflammation, through more chronic diseases like diabetes, macular degeneration, glaucoma, and cataracts. I also enjoy seeing healthy eyes, where I have the opportunity to educate my patients on how to maintain excellent eye health.

One of my favorite things to do for my patients is cataract surgery. Cataract surgery can safely and effectively restore sight to an otherwise visually-disabled eye. Even better, with only a slight modification in technique and instrumentation, I can take cataract surgery to developing countries and help tackle one of the world’s leading causes of curable blindness.

When I am not with my patients or abroad on a surgical mission, I enjoy spending time with my family, running, cycling, hiking, disc golfing, and cheering for the Seattle Seahawks.
