Chairman's Letter

As Chairman of the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, and Executive Director of the UCHealth Eye Center, I am pleased to welcome you to our website.  This is a rapidly growing, dynamic organization which I feel privileged to lead. 

Our subspecialists are known nationally for providing cutting-edge care for complex vision-threatening diseases.  The foundation of this excellence is our commitment to providing the most cutting-edge care for common diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration.  We have taken a lead nationally in finding innovative solutions to improving the technologies associated with treating and curing these diseases.  This goal requires a deep understanding of the currently available science worldwide and allows us to achieve unparalleled clinical outcomes for our patients.  From bench to bedside, we have the expertise to make a positive impact on your eye health.

For all of you who are contemplating joining our organization in Colorado whether it is as a resident, clinical faculty, research faculty, or staff, I welcome you to the website.  It is a powerful tool to keep us connected to you.
