Jan Stahl, M.D.
"I could say that what attracted me to the field of ophthalmology was that I was a physics major in college and loved the physics of optics and lasers and all the high tech devices we get to use, or that I love operating on and examining such a magnificent organ as the eye and this would all be true. The real treat, however, is that sight is one of the most important of the senses and restoring it for people is so incredibly satisfying that I couldn’t imagine a more rewarding occupation."
