This content was provided by Dr. Ruff "Over the past 20 years in practice, I’ve been blessed with the privilege of participating in the miracle of ever improving technology. It’s mind boggling to contemplate the enormous impact in the quality of life that has occurred because of how these advances have allowed us to care for ocular disease. However, it is never far from my thoughts that in the end, medicine is about human tissue, being taken care of by human beings, with equipment designed by humans. Therefore, those of us capable of using these miraculous tools must consistently meld the talents of our hearts, our minds and our hands in order to achieve the best results possible. As with Horowitz on the piano, Roger Federer with his racquet or Dr. King giving a speech, medicine ultimately is a personal expression that goes so much beyond just the literature, and the technology. Continually contemplating the beauty of the process along with knowing the beauty of the tissue creates the joy when you know you’ve made a difference in the life of a patient. I have always felt it to be an honor that each patient comes to see me, or allows me to perform surgery. You will find this feeling permeating each Envision Eye Center, dedicated to providing you with a truly heartfelt experience."
