About

Biography

As an ophthalmologist, I care for children – and sometimes adults. I chose this field because saving sight is a wonderful thing.

I believe in listening to my patients. To me, that means listening to both children and their parents. I do my best to answer questions so that patients and families fully understand the diagnosis and treatment process.

I specialize in treating cornea conditions, ocular inflammatory disease and uveitis. I perform corneal surgeries, corneal transplants and cataract surgeries.

When not seeing patients, I serve as the Residency Program Director for the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Cincinnati. This is the only training program for ophthalmologists in the Greater Cincinnati metropolitan area.

My work as a camp counselor in college inspired me to focus on caring for children. I have always enjoyed working with kids.

An important component of my research focuses on the clinical care of uveitis in children and adults.

I’m honored to be the recipient of several awards. I am regularly listed by Best Doctors in America (since 1998), as a Top Doctor by Castle Connolly, and as a Top Doctor by both Cincinnati Magazine and Cincy Magazine.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy family time with my wife, Carolyn, and our four children.
