He completed his ophthalmology residency at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, receiving advanced surgical training at the Callahan Eye Foundation Hospital.

He continues to have a special interest in treating corneal and retinal diseases. Dr. Glaser has practiced in the Upstate since the completion of his residency training and is board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology.

Dr. Glaser, his wife, Michelle, and their son live in Greenville. They enjoy hiking in the Upstate, gardening, and improving their lousy golf swings. Dr. Glaser ran cross country and track in college; he and his wife enjoy a more relaxed pace of jogging now. They both enjoy music.

Patient Comments (8)
