While Dr. Person specializes in cataract surgery, she sees a wide variety of patients and treats various eye diseases from glaucoma to dry eyes. She has a personal approach to the way she interacts with her patients and emphasizes good communication. “I develop a partnership with each patient and tailor treatments that work best with each individual’s lifestyle. I feel it is important to take each person’s overall health into account when treating eye disease,” says Dr. Person. Educating patients about their eye issues and carefully explaining treatment, empowers the patient to be in control of their health. She also focuses on preventative care including annual diabetic exams and maximizing vitamin supplements to benefit the eyes.
