I believe that medicine, and particularly, ophthalmology and glaucoma,
are both sciences and arts. I endeavor to apply the science of medicine
and tailor a treatment plan to the individual patient.
Educating patients that glaucoma is a team effort. I challenge them to
take an active role in treating their disease. After all, they\'re
the ones who have to take eyedrops on a daily basis in order to prevent
vision loss. So at each visit, we have a frank discussion of the status
of their disease and what we are going to do to keep them seeing for the
rest of their lives.
I can still vividly remember putting on my first pair of glasses as an
eighth-grader and thinking, \"That's great - I can see now.\"
After that experience, I decided that being an ophthalmologist would allow
me to provide others with that thrilling feeling of improved vision and
quality of life.
