Dr. Stewart's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Stewart "Dr. Colby Stewart has always known that he was going to help people with their vision. Raised in Houston, Texas, by his mother and his father, the late Dr. Robert Stewart, Colby was constantly surrounded by the nation's leading ophthalmologists and their patients. Dr. Robert Stewart was one of the original founding doctors at Houston Eye and eventually helped create one of the largest ophthalmology group practices in the United States. EducationDr. Colby Stewart graduated from the University of Texas Ophthalmology residency program in Galveston in 1996. He completed a six-month fellowship in oculoplastic and reconstructive surgery before moving to Tennessee. He later received his specialty certification in 1998 by the American Board of Ophthalmology. In 2009, Dr. Stewart was one of the first to become re-certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology. TrainingDr. Stewart spent 1997 through 2003 working exclusively in middle Tennessee, including cities such as Nashville, Cookeville, and Knoxville. He worked together with local eye care providers and optometrists as their primary surgeon, and was performing oculoplastic procedures, topical anesthetic cataract surgery, glaucoma procedures and a new form of refractive surgery called LASIK. In 1998 he was the first surgeon to perform LASIK surgery in Cookeville, and quickly became recognized across middle Tennessee for his surgical skills. Dr. Stewart developed tracking and goal adjusting Internet software for his LASIK practice. Many doctors, including Dr. Stewart, still use this software today to monitor their results and to insure that patients are good candidates for LASIK."
