  • In the fall of 2020, I moved to Grand Junction, CO and am currently employed by ICON here in town. As a glaucoma fellow, I provide my patients with general Ophthalmology care with a sub-specialization in Glaucoma management, and perform cataract surgeries with premium IOL options along with my associate Dr. Jame Fox. Our group employs several Optometrists and we work as a team to best apply our skill sets to provide quality care to the regional communities.
    I continue to Chair the ANSI Z80 Committee where we revise and create standards for the development of IOL's as well as glaucoma devices and other eye-related equipment equipment including the femtosecond laser, and continue to work as a Technical Advisory Expert to ISO in related matters.
