Samuel Solish, MD

Glaucoma and Cataract Surgeon

“I became an ophthalmologist because treating vision and eye diseases is perhaps the most fascinating and gratifying field in medicine. It is a field that merges cutting edge research, technology and precision surgery to assist in the treatment or correction of vision-threatening problems. It is so satisfying to go home every evening knowing I have made a positive impact in the lives of others.”
