General Info

About me

From the first day of college I knew I wanted to study ophthalmology. I had the joy of seeing my dad, also an ophthalmologist, help improve eyesight and quality of life of many people. As an ophthalmologist, I like to help you with your vision problems, such as cataracts, astigmatism, myopia and retinal problems.
