Learn about this doctor

Dr. Vann's Care Philosophy

I am a Comprehensive Ophthalmologist who specializes in patients with cataracts and cataract surgery related problems. When it comes to treating patients I like to have a clear understanding of their problems and expectations so that I can explain what I can reasonably do for them. Seeing the satisfaction of a happy patient after successful cataract surgery is my favorite part of my job. I have always enjoyed working and interacting with people and feeling like I can improve their lives. I enjoy being in a scientific field and the optics anatomy and skills required to become an ophthalmologist drew my interest after my grandfather underwent cataract surgery while I was a teenager. Outside of work I enjoy running cycling triathlons and ballroom dancing.
