I am an ophthalmologist specializing in ocular immunology and corneal transplantation. I am also a professor of ophthalmology at the New Jersey Medical School of Rutgers University, where I teach residents and medical students. My office is located in Palisades Park, New Jersey. I conduct research and clinical trials and lecture nationally and internationally. I strive to provide cutting-edge medical and surgical options for patients with complex ocular conditions.
“My research interests can be categorized into three main areas, ocular infections, immunology and ocular surface disorders. I am interested in understanding the pathophysiology of cornea infection; in particular, contact lens associated microbial keratitis, and its treatments. I am also studying new ways of diagnosing and treating uveitis and scleritis, and their associated condition, including sarcoidosis and juvenile idiopathic arthritis. Corneal transplant rejection is also an area I am actively researching. Ocular surface disorders, such as keratoconjunctivitis sicca and pterygium, are of interest as well and novel use of amniotic membrane for chemical injuries among other conditions is being studied.”
