The Glaucoma Clinic is a division of the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at the University of Iowa. The department covers all aspects of ophthalmic care and is consistently rated among the top few departments of ophthalmology in the United States.
The Glaucoma Clinic operates 5 days a week. There are 5 faculty: Nathaniel C. Sears, M.D., Erin A. Boese, M.D., John H. Fingert, M.D., Ph.D., Wallace L.M. Alward, M.D., and Dan I. Bettis, M.D. All five are fellowship trained glaucoma specialists who are world-renowned for their expertise in glaucoma management. Our current glaucoma fellow physician, Dr. Matthew Miller, M.D., is on the far right.
Within the clinic the faculty are involved in providing the most up to date patient care but also teaching. We have 1 fellow, 2 ophthalmology residents and a medical student in the clinic at any given time.
