Dr. Matthew Mills, MD
In school, subjects like physics, calculus and chemistry always came fairly easily to me. So I entered college planning to become an engineer. As I continued to have academic success, I began to consider a career in medicine. My father, whose friend was an ophthalmologist, suggested that ophthalmology was a gratifying field in which one can make an enormous impact for others. During medical school, I considered several specialties, but I always kept coming back to ophthalmology. I saw it as a great opportunity to really help people by restoring one of their most vital senses. I was also drawn to the ever-advancing technology and the detailed skill that's involved. Another aspect that really stood out for me was the high success rates of ophthalmic surgery and the ability to change lives for the better. Those high rates of success still motivate me today. And the same is true of the technological advances and the ability to make a difference in people's lives. It's very fulfilling to give a person back the gift of eyesight. Helping people is why I do this... and why I devote myself to raising the standard of care and expanding what is possible through ophthalmic care.

I have been seeing Dr. Mills and his predecessor, Dr. Schonder, for many years. The doctors and their entire staff have always treated me with caring professionalism. On a recent visit, Dr. Mills and his assistant gave me a coupon for an exorbitantly priced medication that reduced the copay to an affordable $35..Saved me a bundle!

I am so pleased with my results! Dr. Mills took an impossible situation and corrected my vision beyond expectations. His skill is unsurpassed. I've dealt with poor vision due to many refractive surgeries and never expected to have such good results. Thank you Dr. Mills!

I met Dr. Mills 10 years ago at a non medical related business meeting. After that day I knew Dr. Mills would be the only doctor I would ever consider performing Lasik on my eyes. A few months ago I ran into Dr Mills at a charity event. I told him I had been hesitant about Lasik for years until recently researched the newest procedure called iLasik. He was one of the only doctors performing it so I decided right then to schedule my consult. I am one week post op with perfect vision!

My experience with Dr. Mills and his staff was superb. I can see--finally!
