Dr. Schulze Jr's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Schulze Jr "I specialize in anterior segment surgery, including cataract surgery, LASIK, PRK, ICL, and corneal transplant surgery (DSEK, DMEK, and PK).

As a fourth generation physician, I am fortunate to be able to carry on a tradition of compassionate care and surgical excellence. "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Schulze Jr "As a fourth generation physician, I am fortunate to have many wonderful role models within my family.  Our goal is to pursue care that puts the best interests of the patient before all other concerns.  In my practice, I like to think that I don't treat eyes, I treat people, which is another way of saying that for every eye I treat, our plan of care is customized to the individual. "
