Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Zelenak "I care for patients as if they were a member of my family. Vision loss can be terrifying. I strive to help my patients deal with vision problems with medical and surgical options. A conservative approach that respects the wishes of the patient allows me to work in a collaborative fashion. I believe in giving my honest opinion and not offering false hope."
