Nathan M. Radcliffe, M.D.
I am an ophthalmologist specializing in the care of patients with glaucoma. Myprimary goal is not only to provide state of the art medical and surgical glaucoma care, but also to help guide my patientsthrough the difficult and often confusing process of understanding glaucoma. A diagnosis of glaucoma, possible glaucoma, oreven worsening glaucoma can be very anxiety provoking for patients, however I believe that by allowing my patients to understandtheir glaucoma process, most of the anxiety can be relieved. Furthermore, we can make decisions together that take into accounteach patient’s lifestyle and needs. Conditions that I commonly treat include:
Angle Closure GlaucomaOpen AngleGlaucoma
Low Tension Glaucoma
