About Us

Sight can start with glasses and contacts, however, vision is the brain process that lies behind the eyes. After many years of practice and not being able to address the full visual process, we decided to open a clinic that can take vision to the next level.

Transforming Lives Through Vision

Transforming lives through innovative healthcare. At Katmai Eye we look deeper when treating eye health conditions including dry eyes, and evaluate and treat the surrounding tissues for a more functional and lasting approach. We treat the conditions that develop as the tissues of skin around the eyes change such as dry eyes, droopy eyelids, broken blood vessels, wrinkles, and other irregular skin formations. We use the latest technology and advanced education to come up with the best treatment options, eyeglass, and contact lens prescriptions for your vision. We do this in a relaxed and intimate setting with a team that feels like family.

I have enjoyed practicing in Alaska since 1996. It’s the place I love to live and play with my family and friends. Skiing, coaching, mountain and snow biking, hiking, hunting, fishing and flying are just some of my loves.

After growing up in Alaska, I graduated from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry and The Eye Institute in 1996 with clinical honors.

I am the board chairman of the Alaska Brain Injury Network and a Fellow of the College of Optometrist in Vision Development. I am past president of the Alaska Optometric Association, legislative key person for the Alaska Optometric Association, members of the national Alaska Optometric Association, Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation Association, Optometric Extension Program, and the College of Optometrists in Vision Development.
