The site for all things eye-related
I’m an Associate Professor of Ophthalmology at the Stanford University School of Medicine, Director of Clinical and Translational Research and Director of Ophthalmic Diagnostics at the Byers Eye Institute at Stanford in Palo Alto, CA.
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 served as President of the Stanford Medicine 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.
