Corneal Specialist, Ophthalmologist: Preeya K. Gupta, MD

My name’s Dr. Preeya Gupta. I’m a cornea, cataract, and refractive
specialist here at the Duke Eye Center. One of the reasons why I love what I do
is that I get to see such a variety of patients. I specialize in cataract surgery, and so, I see cataracts generally in
patients as they get older. I also see and
treat patients with LASIK surgery. And so, it’s an amazing dichotomy to be able
give people that spectacle independence. Being glasses free and
that sort of wow effect. But also, really help someone
who has lost their vision and is suffering from
the consequences of poor vision. Helping them regain, that is
something that to me is very special. And I feel very fortunate
to be able to do that. One of the other areas in my
practice that I’m particularly excited about is corneal transplantation. We’ve been doing corneal transplantation
here at Duke for many years. And I felt lucky to be one of
the surgeons here that has a privilege of helping patients to regain their
visions from blinding corneal issues. I think, the reason why
patients should choose Duke is that we have specials in all areas. We have local,
friendly service that really provide patients with the most
cutting edge technology. With access to a wide range of specialists
who treat a wide variety of diseases. And I think, that when it comes to your
eyes, you wanna make the right decision. And you want somebody who cares about you. But also, cares about giving
you the highest quality and the most current treatments.
