Learn about Dr. Knight

Care Philosophy

Dr. Knight's goal was, and continues to be, to provide the very best in eye health care and surgery to the residents of the Mississippi Gulf Coast. He practices general ophthalmology with emphasis on cataract surgery. Additionally, he is able to deliver specialty expertise in retinal and vitreal problems. Areas of specialization include macular degeneration, diabetic retinal disease, retinal detachment, and vascular diseases of the retina. Dr. Knight is proficient in retinal laser treatment and the newer modalities of macular degeneration treatment including Macugen and Avastin. Dr. Knight's cataract surgery involves the use of sutureless cataract surgery using topical or eye drop anesthesia. Dr. Knight was the first ophthalmologist on the Mississippi Gulf Coast to utilize the Alcon Restore Presbyopic Intraocular Lens and the Acrysoft natural tinted lens implant. While Dr. Knight is available for consultation on referral from other ophthalmologists and other physicians, he is also available for routine eye exams. Dr. Knight is a Fellow of the American Academy of Ophthalmology as well as a member of the American Society for Cataract and Referactive Surgery.

I go for my annual eye exam only. Dr Knight is personable and efficient. When i called the office last year because my new lens prescription was not working out, he personally called me back, discussed my problem, and changed my prescription for the better. Staff is pleasant and professional. I recommend this office.
