Flaum Eye Institute / About Us / Our Team

Our Team

No one should live with vision that is less than what it can be. People who have trouble seeing often accept their condition, not knowing that treatment is available—from the simplest of medications and visual tools to state-of-the-art surgical procedures.

At the Flaum Eye Institute, we are a world-class team of ophthalmologists, subspecialists, and researchers. Working through a unique partnership of academic medicine, private industry, and the community, we are here to serve you. Our doctors are committed to developing and applying advanced technologies for the preservation, enhancement, and restoration of vision.
