Dr. Sushma Rai, MD
Sushma Rai has dedicated her career to caring for patients as well as conducting research that has helped to improve the care provided by ophthalmologists. Sushma Rai joined Barnet Dulaney Perkins Eye Center from the University of Nebraska Medical Center where she had served as the co-director of the Glaucoma Service. Also, as the director of the university's glaucoma fellowship program she applied her expertise and years of experience to train future ophthalmologists She has participated in research evaluating new diagnostic and surgical devices for treatment of glaucoma. She has been called upon to deliver lectures to colleagues around the country. Her areas of interest include New medical and surgical treatments for glaucoma Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) Cataract surgery in glaucoma patients Philosophy of care: I am a strong believer in the saying prevention is better than cure. Glaucoma is often termed the 'sneak thief of sight' and hence we need to raise awareness of glaucoma and the importance of regular eye exams to encourage earlier detection and thus help preserve vision. This in turn leads to achieving the ultimate goal which is maximizing the quality of life, including the number of eye drops and visual quality for my patients. I believe in providing compassionate, quality care and fostering an environment that promotes respect and good communication between the patient and the health care team.
