Dr. Channon's bio
This content was provided by Dr. Channon "Dr. Channon joined the group in 1981. He is a graduate of the City University of New York, Queens College. Dr. Channon then completed his medical school at the New York Medical College, where he was a member of the AOA National Medical Honor Society, and a Mosby Scholar. A medical internship was completed at the Metropolitan Hospital Center, in New York, and a medical residency at the State University of Stonybrook, Northport. A residency in Ophthalmology was completed at the Downstate Medical Center, in New York. Dr. Channon is a Diplomate of the American Board of Ophthalmology, and a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He has broad interests in many fields of ophthalmology, however, his particular interest is Laser Assisted Cataract surgery. At the present time, the use of advanced technology lens implants minimzes the need for post cataract surgery glasses correction. This is achieved with toric lens implants, or multifocal lens implants. The latest addition to the performance of cataract surgery is the use of the CATALYS Laser Cataract removal system. This incredibly precise laser automates some of the most diffiuclt parts of the surgery to enhance safety and improve the outcomes of surgery. Please view the video for a detailed animation of the procedure. In addition to cataract and implant surgery, Dr. Channon manages and treats a comprehensive spectrum of ophthalmic conditions, including macular disease, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and ocular surface conditions. The practice has extensive diagnostic equipment to aid in the management of these conditions. This includes angiography, ultrasound, OCT, visual fields, topography, tear osmolarity testing, and ocular photography. Dr. Channon has taken part in numerous depositions, as well as many chart reviews, primarily for evaluation of disability, but also to resolve issues of standard of care."
