Accepting Patients:


Dr. Lauer is Chief of the Retina – Vitreous Division and Kenneth C. Swan Professor of Ophthalmology at Casey Eye Institute.  Dr. Lauer strives to provide effective, efficient and compassionate medical and surgical care for patients with disorders of the retina and vitreous. Patients are typically referred from other eye care physicians for evaluation and management of conditions such as macular pucker, macular hole, retinal tear and detachment, diabetic retinopathy, wet age-related macular degeneration and retinal vein occlusion. Surgical care is provided using state-of-the-art equipment in cooperation with a dedicated outpatient surgical eye care staff.  Most commonly conducted surgical procedures include vitrectomy treatment of epiretinal membrane (macular pucker), macular hole, retinal detachment, diabetic retinopathy and posterior segment complications following surgery or trauma. For most surgeries, sutureless microincision techniques are used to reduce post-operative ocular discomfort. Dr. Lauer serves as Vice-Chair for Education & Director of the Ophthalmology Residency Training Program.
