Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Fekrat Vision is so intricately related to one's quality of life. Many patients who come to the Duke Eye Center are concerned that they could be going blind but they rarely ask that question directly. It is important that my patients clearly understand their eye disease process the risks benefits and all treatment options so that we can make joint decisions. I try to reassure when possible and share the positives such as 'their eye condition may only affect one eye' or that 'it is possible to improve their vision or prevent further visual loss'. We also discuss how other health problems or lifestyle decisions can affect their visual health. When someone has a vision threatening condition it is my goal to ensure that they know that as their physician I will advise them and guide them through their treatment and the often complicated medical system. I enjoy what I do every day as part of the Duke Health family!
