General Info

About me

I think the medicine is in my blood as I belong to a family where there were many doctors, and recalling the example of my father, who was an ophthalmologist, this profession captivated me from a young age. Having been blessed to help my peers in a fascinating field as is the sense of sight, is something I love and fulfills me.
What I like most about my job is the contact with people, being able to provide a customized care with the best technology, both for diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases, especially glaucoma, cataracts, pterygium, refractive defects, keratoconus and diabetic lesions.

"A most enthusiastic recommendation for Dr. Umana. He listened well and did an excellent job of removing a grain of sand from my eye that had been bothering me for two weeks (what can I say? I'm a guy and the "wait-and-see" approach is always my first choice). He streamed the procedure to a screen so my wife could watch. She says that now that she knows how it's done, she'll take a needle to my eye the next time:) The staff was friendly, the price was as stated, and there is convenient off-street parking next door. Of course I hope I never need this kind of help again, but if I do I will definitely return."
