The site for all things eye-related
I’m a Clinical Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at the Stanford University School of Medicine and Director of Ophthalmic Diagnostics at the Byers Eye Institute at Stanford in Palo Alto, CA. I also work part-time at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation.
I am a board-certified ophthalmologist that specializes in vitreoretinal diseases and surgery, which means that I am a “retina specialist” and deal with many sight-threatening disorders such as macular degeneration and diabetes on a daily basis.
I started this blog to help inform others about vision and the things that can affect it. Occasionally, I write about other topics, but the main focus of this page is to help inform about eye care. I draw from my daily experience as a busy clinician and educator and address the most common issues that arise.
Outside of my work as a physician, I am active in developing the intersection of medicine and mobile/social media and serve as a Director on the Board of Governors of the Stanford University Medical Center Alumni Association. I also enjoy mentoring medical and pre-medical students and volunteering as a Command Pilot with Angel Flight West to fly patients for medical care.
When I am not doing any of the above, I dream about flying airplanes.
