Ihsan Yilmaz, M.D.

About Dr. Ihsan

When Dr. Ihsan decided to become an eye surgeon he had a simple goal: he wanted to help people see better. And perhaps because Dr. Yilmaz doesn’t do things halfway that goal was rapidly supplanted by a new one: to give his patients great vision, without the need for glasses or contact lenses. And after over then twenty years of working at the forefront of innovative vision correction surgery, he’s made that target an attainable one.

“My goal is to make glasses and contacts obsolete. I think in the next 10 years, we’ll get to the point where nobody has to wear them anymore.”
