I am currently a full-time faculty member in the Department of Ophthalmology at Jefferson Medical College, Thomas Jefferson University, in the Clinical and Educational Scholarship track. My research interests include investigating new medications to lower IOP and scarring in glaucoma patients, anti-fibrotic techniques, as well as new devices to improve surgical outcomes and reduce complications. As an attending surgeon on the Wills Eye Glaucoma Services and Professor of Ophthalmology at Jefferson Medical College, I am very supportive of Dr. Julia Haller’s Research to Prevent Blindness grant application.
My research interests include pharmacologic advancements in the treatment of glaucoma and surgical interventions to minimize risk and improve outcomes of glaucoma surgery. I am heavily involved with fellow and resident teaching, and serve on the board of the American Glaucoma Society. I have authored 100 peer-reviewed publications. A special interest has been my involvement in clinical research trials. I am a member of numerous medical and glaucoma-related associations and have been listed in Best Doctors in America and “Top Doctors” in the Philadelphia area for many years. I have been invited to lecture nationally and internationally on the surgical and medical treatment of glaucoma.
