CLINICAL BACKGROUND AND MY APPROACH TO CARE

I specialize in diagnosis and medical and surgical treatment of glaucoma. Glaucoma is a complex and chronic disease, but with appropriate treatment, most people can retain good vision. For patients with ocular hypertension or early glaucoma we create the best plan for the simplest therapy. Patients with advanced disease often need surgery. At Upstate we offer the full range of surgical options for glaucoma.
