Dr. Bennett's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Bennett "Dr. Bennett is the area's only eye specialist with degrees in both medicine and optometry. He received a BA from the University of Wisconsin, his Doctor of Optometry degree from Indiana University, and Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Cincinnati. He completed his residency at the University of Louisville. He founded what is now Bennett and Bloom Eye Centers in 1987. Through a caring and skillful approach to patient care, Dr. Bennett guided Bennett and Bloom Eye Centers to become one of the premier practices in the area for medicine and surgical eye care. Dr. Bennett specializes in anterior segment eye surgery and was the first ophthalmologist in the area to perform "No Needles, No Stitch, No Patch Cataract Surgery", using only eye drops to numb the eye, and remains the leader in that technique. An accomplished LASIK surgeon, Dr. Bennett is one of the area's foremost refractive surgeons. Dr. Bennett is a member of the Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society, has served as chief of surgery at CARITAS Medical Center and medical staff president of CARITAS Surgery Center, and is a published author in scientific journals. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Ophthalmology, and is a member of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, Kentucky Academy of Eye Physicians and Surgeons, Louisville Academy of Ophthalmology, Kentucky Medical Association, and Jefferson County Medical Society. Dr. Bennett has been honored by his peers by selecting him for inclusion in "The Best Doctors in America"."
