Dr. Wiley's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Wiley "Dr. William Wiley has been listed for 5 consecutive years in Cleveland Magazine's "Top Doctor" edition. Top Doctors lists, like Castle Connolly, base their selection process on the foundation of peer nominations. Dr. Wiley and his professional staff of more than 100 put patient care and comfort first. He actively participates in a number of clinical trials, providing patients with access to cutting-edge treatments not yet available to the public. Dr. Wiley was one of the first doctors in the area to offer all laser LASIK using the Intralase femtosecond laser. He was also one of the first doctors in the country to offer ORA Intraoperative Wavefront Aberrometer with VerifEye. This technology allows for improved results with cataract surgery through customizing intraocular lens choice and position individualized to the patient. He was the first in the regions to utilize Catalys and LENSAR femtosecond lasers for laser assisted refractive cataract surgery. He has performed more than 40,000 eye surgeries. He is nationally and internationally recognized for his educational lectures and teaching efforts. For Dr. Wiley, eye care is all in the family. His father Robert is a retired eye surgeon, an early pioneer in LASIK and one of the original founders of Clear Choice. As a result, Dr.Wiley knew at a young age what he would be when he grew up. And he isn't just walking in his dad's footsteps, he's running in them. Dr. Wiley received a BA in Chemistry from the University of Virginia, then attended the Medical College of Ohio. During a rotation in medical school in Russia, he worked with Dr. Svyatoslov Fyodorov, the pioneer of modern refractive surgery. And William received honors from Harvard Medical School during an advanced ophthalmology rotation. Dr. Wiley's credentials continue beyond his education. He's worked in China, Russia and India, studying the latest refractive techniques. And he's truly a "doctor's doctor" – Dr. Wiley has performed surgery on more than 100 physicians and their families in the last four years. Dr. Wiley is currently medical director at Clear Choice, the Cleveland Eye Clinic and Toledo LASIK Center. He also helps young ophthalmologists learn He assists the faculty at Case Western University Hospital. He enjoys spending time with his wife and two young children.

I would recommend Dr Wiley to my friends
in Bedford, OH |
He is very personable and kind. He did cataract surgery on both of my eyes and everything went very smoothly. Both experiences were very positive.
in Fremont, OH |
Two years ago, my 93 year old mother was legally blind. Through a client of mine, I heard about Dr. Wiley. I'd heard from so many people that mom was too old for cataract surgery. I moved back to Ohio to get Dr. willy to do the surgery. He did it and afterwards, mom's right eye was 20/30, but her left eye didn't do too well do to previous laser treatments. For the last two years, mom can read her bible, see the bird feeders, and eat by herself. Thanks to Dr. Wiley!
in Ottawa, OH |
I had my surgery 7 years ago, and have been extremely happy with the results. I can see very clearly, and didn't realize all of the little details I was missing by not seeing properly when I first woke up in the morning. Dr. Wiley is professional, yet approachable!
