Paul H. Ernest – Michigan Ophthalmologist
Paul H. Ernest, M.D. founded Specialty Eye Institute in 1978 and is now an eminent ophthalmologist, but his educational foundation started out very differently. In his undergraduate days at Northwestern University, he was a dedicated engineering major for three years and even took an engineering internship with Ford Motor Company before the rewarding field of medicine beckoned.
After he witnessed his grandmother’s successful corneal transplant surgery, he focused his education in ophthalmology. Both his doctorate and his residency were completed at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan; he also served a fellowship at Wayne State University’s Kresge Eye Institute, specializing in cornea and anterior segment surgery. Dr. Ernest’s commitment to the people of Michigan is evident to this day.
Solving patients’ problems in a focused, detail-oriented way is something that Dr. Ernest prides himself on. He has retained the meticulousness of his engineering training and applied it to his current team-based approach to his work. Dr. Ernest is quick to praise his colleagues for being highly qualified and communicative. He says of himself and his fellow doctors, “We’re tight-knit and will stop at nothing to achieve our patients’ goals.”
Dr. Ernest is committed to being up-to-date and as innovative as possible when it comes to his training and technology. Dr. Ernest provides custom vision through laser cataract and refractive surgery.
With an extensive amount of experience, TV appearances, and work in the field – Dr. Paul H Ernest is one of the country’s leading vision experts, and customizes each treatment for the patient’s specific vision needs and lifestyle.
Dr. Ernest did my cataract surgery & repaired astigmatism. The outcome is spectacular. The office staff is very efficient and professional as is the staff at the Surgery Center. Dr. Ernest & staff educated me fully about cataracts, the surgery procedure, the risks & the prognosis. I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome of what was a scary proposition before consulting TLC. Dr. Ernest is a brilliant eye surgeon, a kind, dedicated man and has many outstanding accomplishments in the Opthalmology field during his career. Thank you Dr. Ernest & all the Staff.
