Professional Statement

My work focuses on improving the outcomes of cataract surgery and refractive surgery procedures such as LASIK and PRK. It involves all aspects: careful measurement, individualized selection of the appropriate options for each patient, meticulous surgery, prevention of complications, and maximizing the final vision. I also specialize in the management of complex conditions including cataract and intraocular lens problems, iris repair and replacement, and management of LASIK and PRK problems. I conduct research and teach physicians around the world in these areas.
