As any frequent reader of my blog knows, I love to start with a quote. This year I’ve chosen to go simple with a quote from Charles Kettering – “Every time you tear a leaf off a calendar, you present a new place for new ideas and progress”. In this age of electronic devices, that calendar leaf is probably on your iPhone or Android, but the idea resonates.
I am very excited to be entering my 4th year at Akler Eye Center and my 16th year practicing ophthalmology. Our practice is constantly evolving and changing, and the new year gives us a chance to both look back at what has been accomplished and look forward to what we can achieve. In the last 4 years I have integrated femtosecond LASER technology into both my LASIK and cataract practice resulting in excellent visual results for my patients. In the coming year I hope to continue to be a leader in the Metro Detroit area in both LASIK and cataract surgery. Akler Eye Center will also continue to offer comprehensive care in all ophthalmic areas including diabetic eye examinations, glaucoma management, macular degeneration management and management of dry eyes.
I have written before that the greatest gift the practice of medicine has given me is the ongoing relationships I have developed with my patients. I hope 2015 affords me the chance to enjoy the relationships I have as well as forge many new ones. I wish all of you a happy and healthy new year!
