Practice Philosophy:

I have pioneered research in orbital reconstruction and treatment of spastic eyelid disease. My practice covers the full scope of problems related to the eyelids and orbits, including blepharospasm, eyelid malpositions, tearing disorders, thyroid eye disease, eyelid and orbital trauma, and periocular malignancies. I have a particular interest in intraocular malignancies, with internationally recognized expertise in treatment of choroidal malignant melanoma. I served as a principle investigator for the national collaborative melanoma treatment trial and perform episcleral radioactive plaque therapy for treatment of intraocular melanoma.
