Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Veldman "Dr. Peter Veldman is a fellowship-trained ophthalmologist at Mass. Eye and Ear. He specializes in corneal (front of the eye) and external disease. Dr. Peter Veldman is a member of the Cornea and Refractive Surgery Service at Mass. Eye and Ear and has a special focus in lamellar, or partial thickness, corneal transplantation procedures. The most advanced of these partial thickness techniques, Descemet's Membrane Endothelial Keratoplasty (DMEK) , provides patients with faster and better visual recovery with a lower risk of rejection than any prior form of corneal transplantation, including its partial thickness predecessor, Descemet's Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty (DSAEK). Dr. Veldman is one of only a handful of ophthalmologists on the East Coast with extensive experience in DMEK surgery.
