Dr. Michael O.D. and staff enjoy constantly learning and expanding our knowledge past the boundaries of optometry. Recently, Dr. Michael completed an online course through Georgetown University on genomics. Genomics research is advancing quickly. The benefits in diagnosis and treatment of conditions will certainly have an impact in your healthcare in the future. Dr. Michael encourages our patients and their families to be informed, to be open to and aware of the advancements. Genomics is complicated by the sheer volume of data, the private nature of the information and the need for collaboration for the best outcomes. There is a lot that is still not understood and the implications are significant. We will provide some updates in genomic research and the implications to the ocular health of our patients.
