Philosophy of Care:

"I am a strong believer in the saying prevention is better than cure. Glaucoma is often termed the 'sneak thief of sight' and hence we need to raise awareness of glaucoma and the importance of regular eye exams to encourage earlier detection and help preserve vision. This in turn leads to achieving the ultimate goal which is maximizing the quality of life, including the number of medications and visual quality for my patients. I believe in engaging my patients actively in their eye care thus reaching our goal. My areas of interest include medical and surgical treatment of the various kinds of glaucoma and complex cataracts."
