Board certification should be one of your top considerations when choosing a doctor. Board certification is an official recognition given to doctors who have met specific requirements set by national medical specialty boards in the United States.
Board certification indicates that a doctor is highly qualified in the medical field in which he or she practices. A board-certified doctor is more likely than a non-board-certified doctor to have the most current skills and knowledge about how to treat your medical condition.
Dr. Ward has a special interest in the diagnosis and treatment of Fuch's dystrophy and is one of the first surgeons in the Intermountain West to offer DMEK surgery as his surgical treatment of choice for this condition. DMEK surgery is the most advanced surgery available to treat Fuch's dystrophy and other forms of corneal swelling. DMEK has several advantages over older types of surgery that include better vision, more rapid recovery, and dramatically reduced rates of rejection. Dr. Ward helped develop the injector system for these very delicate transplants that is rapidly becoming the preferred injector for DMEK surgery in the United States.
Dr. Ward offers comprehensive cornea and anterior segment services and is equipped with the latest technology to evaluate, diagnose, and treat complex pathologies. Conditions he commonly treats include: cataracts, pterygium, Fuch's dystrophy, keratoconus, bullous keratopathy, failed cornea transplants, corneal scars, epithelial basement membrane dystrophy, Salzmann's nodular degeneration, intraocular lens and cataract surgery complications, conjunctival tumors, and infectious corneal disease including herpetic, bacterial, fungal, and amoebic keratitis.
He is also fellowship-trained in approved types of refractive surgery including LASIK, PRK, and Visian ICL surgery.
Riverwoods Eye Center's anterior segment imaging suite includes Ziemer Galilei topography/tomography, Alcon Lenstar biometry, Optovue anterior segment OCT, and the Nidek Confoscan 4 confocal microscope.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

I strive for the highest ethical standards of care, offering only well-reasoned and accurate diagnoses, then ensuring that patients understand their problem and treatment. In many offices, patients often spend most of their time with technicians and other staff members, with the doctor making a short appearance at the end of the visit. Patients visiting my office will spend most of their time with me and I will personally perform the exam including the glasses prescription and pressure check.
