Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Deppermann "As a glaucoma specialist, I provide customary, detailed evaluation and treatment. I also individualize care. Glaucoma is a preventative form of blindness. In order to achieve this endpoint of retained vision, a given patient's individual disease and life situation must be taken into account. I do not consider a patient just another person on my daily list. I do not rush in and rush out of exam rooms. Our group teaches a person how to correctly instill eye drops. You become part of our team."
