Keratoconus Doctor, Teacher, Lecturer, and Author
First and foremost I’m a clinician. I find great satisfaction in improving patients’ lives by returning the visual function they once experienced prior to keratoconus. Many of these patients find it difficult to continue to work because their vision has decreased to the point that traditional glasses and contact lenses are of no help. My goal is to give them back as much comfortable vision as possible.
