ACCOMPLISHMENTS | HONORS
Dr. Fox has been instrumental in the introduction of the newest technologies in his field including wavefront-guided custom laser vision correction, bladeless LASIK flap creation with the IntraLase femtosecond laser and the Visian ICL (intraocular contact lens) for individuals with
higher prescriptions or thin corneas who are otherwise ineligible for laser vision correction. Most recently he was among the nation’s first surgeons to introduce the KAMRA corneal inlay for the correction of reading vision. Fox is an expert in the management of Keratoconus making use of Corneal collagen crosslinking and the Intacs technology to improve vision and arrest disease progression. In addition, he has been among the first in the use of femtosecond laser technology for laser-assisted corneal transplantation–a technique that has vastly speeded visual recovery and improved outcomes.
Dr. Fox has appeared on national television shows, including “The View” and “Good Morning America” and is a frequently invited lecturer on topics in corneal disease and refractive surgery featured at the national meetings of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery.
