As Chief of Corneal and Refractive Surgery, Dr. Fox cares for patients throughout the metropolitan area who have corneal eye diseases or desire laser vision correction. With more than 30 years of experience in corneal and refractive surgery, Dr. Fox is widely regarded as a leader in his field. He has performed more than 30,000 laser vision correction procedures over the last 20 years.

Named by Castle Connolly’s “America’s Top Doctors” and New York Magazine as one of the area’s foremost refractive surgeons, Dr. Fox has been instrumental in the introduction of groundbreaking technologies in his field. These include wavefront-guided, custom laser vision correction; bladeless LASIK flap creation with the IntraLase femtosecond laser; and intraocular contact lenses for individuals with higher prescriptions or thin corneas who are not eligible for laser vision correction and KAMRA corneal inlay for presbyopia. In addition, he has been a pioneer in the use of femtosecond laser technology for corneal transplantation and in the treatment of the corneal disease keratoconus using implants called Intacs.

Dr. Fox has appeared on national television shows, including "The View" and "Good Morning America." He also is a frequently invited lecturer on topics in corneal disease and refractive surgery. He has been featured at the national meetings of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery.

As LASIK gained recognition, Dr. Fox, a leader in refractive surgery, appeared on national television.

Dr. Fox is enthusiastic about the excellent safety and efficacy of modern techniques in refractive surgery. As a true patient advocate, he is committed to excellence in surgical outcomes and the patient’s overall experience. He finds great satisfaction in helping patients improve the quality of their lives by achieving independence from contact lenses or glasses.

He is board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.
