One of the Doctors Who Make History
Dr. Myers has 20 years of experience with complex intraocular and refractive surgery. He was one of the first doctors in the Chicago area to switch to outpatient cataract surgery in the early 1980s. He was also one of the first ophthalmologists in the Chicago area to utilize topical eye drop anesthesia for most ocular procedures beginning in 1994.

Dr. Myers is an outdoor enthusiast. With laser vision correction, Dr. Myers can offer his patients the wonder of the enjoying the outdoors without dependence on glasses or contacts. Dr. Myers feels that laser vision correction is one of the best things about being an ophthalmologist.
Philosophy of Care
I believe in working closely with patients to help them achieve the results they desire. Innovations in the operating room have given us some superb new tools to use in helping patients. But it is the human relationship, the communication between doctor and patient that remains most important.
