Why Dr. Krawitz for your Glaucoma?

While glaucoma – a disease of the eye that involves damage to the optic nerve resulting from high pressure and other factors – can be treated in part by general ophthalmologists, it is the doctors who have completed the additional training of a certified Glaucoma Fellowship who are generally best-equipped to provide Complex Glaucoma Management.

Following his four years of medical school, one year of internal medicine internship, and three years of ophthalmology residency, Dr. Krawitz received this specialty glaucoma training under the guidance of two world leaders in Complex Glaucoma Management, Dr. Steven Podos and Dr. Carl Camras. Performed jointly during the year in which Dr. Krawitz also served as Chief Resident in Ophthalmology at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York, Dr. Krawitz performed glaucoma research and performed complex glaucoma surgeries, including procedures for neonatal glaucoma, diabetic glaucoma, and uveitic glaucoma.

As part of paying it forward, Dr. Krawitz now teaches management of glaucoma at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center in New York, where he is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Ophthalmology.
