Dr. Herndon's Care Philosophy
I am a native North Carolinian having grown up in Raleigh NC. I went to UNC-Chapel Hill for my undergraduate degree in Biology and attended Medical School there as well. I remained at UNC to complete my residency in Ophthalmology. I then came to the school with a deeper shade of blue to complete my fellowship year in Glaucoma and joined the faculty at the Duke Eye Center in July of 1996. I knew I wanted to be an eye doctor in 9th grade when I received my first pair of glasses. I could see clearly now and I decided to dedicate my life to helping others improve and/or maintain their vision. My approach with patients is to put them at ease as often they are concerned about going blind. I give them an opportunity to share with me their concerns then I make recommendations based on the best available literature and my personal experience.
