He specializes in laser assisted and traditional cataract surgery, YAG laser capsulotomy, glaucoma treatment, retinal conditions including diabetic eye disease and age related macular degeneration, and dry eye and blepharitis. He was the first ophthalmologist in Carroll County to perform radial keratotomy, laser vision correction for myopia, laser assisted cataract surgery and phacoemulsification for cataracts.

“I have always found helping people to be uplifting. I like listening to peoples' problems and figuring out how I can use my ability to help them. That's why I became an ophthalmologist. After over 34 years in practice, I still feel gratified when I hear people say, 'I see better now, thanks to you.’”

Constantly Seeking Knowledge

“When I was in college, I was always interested in learning more than just what was required for the course. Today, I’m the same way in my practice. I constantly strive to learn all the latest techniques for the benefit of my patients. As a result, I was the first ophthalmologist in Carroll County to perform radial keratotomy, laser vision correction for myopia, laser assisted cataract surgery and phacoemulsification for cataracts.”

Giving The Gift Of Clear Vision

“Every year, I provide free eye exams to low-income senior citizens as part of the National Eye Care Project. I feel honored to have the knowledge to improve a person’s eyesight, and therefore I feel it is my duty to share it with those who are less fortunate. Most senior citizens find great joy in reading books, and I want to help them retain their favorite pastime for as long as possible.”
