Because your Vision Matters
When you decide to put your vision into my hands, it immediately becomes my number one priority. I’ve been serving the South Sound community as a comprehensive ophthalmologist since 2012. I value the relationships I form with each patient, and believe that goes a long way in improving medical and surgical outcomes. Schedule an appointment to find out how I can help you.
I am a Board Certified Ophthalmologist excited to be practicing at Evergreen Eye. Prior to joining Evergreen, I spent 20 years serving in the US Army and two years with Kaiser Permanente. During this time I travelled the world caring for patients and led wonderful teams. I spent three years as the ophthalmology residency program director at Madigan prior to joining Kaiser in 2019. My commitment to my patients and the community inspired me to co-found a 501c3 Non-profit called Hope Vision Foundation empowering patients with vision loss and their caregivers. I give back through Global Cataract Surgery Missions, providing surgery to those without regular access to care. I love the Northwest and getting outside to hike and kayak with my family.
With years of experience, I understand how to work with my patients to ensure they receive the best care possible. My thoughtful and personalized approach means I’m fully committed to the health and well-being of all my patients. Read below to find out about services I provide.
Ocular Surface and Dry Eye Care
If you suffer with dry irritated eyes you understand how frustrating and debilitating it can be. For years, patients have depended on me to provide to get to the bottom of their chronic eye irritation. I will use advanced diagnostics and the latest treatment options to help you take control of your dry eyes.
Comprehensive Eye Care
For years, patients have depended on me to provide this valuable service. Annual diabetic exams, glaucoma checks, cataract evaluations, eye lid concerns and macular degeneration exams and treatment. I’m dedicated to building long-lasting relationships based on trust and medical integrity with every single patient.
Macular Degeneration is most commonly a disease associated with age but can occur in many conditions. This disease can cause dark spots in your vision or distortion. It is very important to start treating early. Treatment includes close monitoring at home with an Amsler grid, regular clinic exams and scans, and for some, injections of Anti-VEGF medication.
When experience matters you want someone who has done thousands of surgeries. I work with my patients to ensure they receive the best results in a safe and calm environment.
If you are experiencing glare, difficulty seeing even with your glasses on or a decrease in vision, you may have cataracts. Cataract surgery is a safe and quick surgery that can give you your vision and freedom back. I will help you find the best lens choice for your goals. I specialize in premium lenses including multifocal and TORIC IOLS and MIGS procedures for patients with glaucoma.
Glaucoma can be a slowly progressing disease which leads to vision loss. It is an exciting time for glaucoma care with many new treatments available and in development. You will get a comprehensive evaluation. We will discuss eye drops, laser, and surgical treatments for glaucoma including, SLT, MIGS and tubes.
