Knobbe, M.D., is a full-time practice in Durant, Oklahoma, dedicated to enhancing patients' lives through precision medical and surgical eyecare. We strive to improve patients' vision through cutting-edge cataract surgical techniques and intraocular lens implants, as well as to preserve the vision of patients who present with sight threatening conditions, such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy.
