      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Costakos' Care Philosophy

      A child's eye is not just a small version of an adult's. Children have special problems with their eyes that need immediate attention in order to assure good vision in both eyes as an adult. I am a Board Certified Ophthalmologist who has done subsequent fellowship training in Pediatric Eye Care. I divide my time between the office at Lakeshore Eye Care in Mequon (Tuesdays), NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Units) throughout the Milwaukee area, and Children's Hospital. I am on the faculty of the Eye Institute where I supervise the training of tomorrow's ophthalmologists and conduct research.
