About Leila Rafla-Demetrious, M.D.
I have been in Ophthalmology for over 20 years, and still find something new to see or learn every day. I practice a mix of comprehensive Ophthalmology with a subspecialty in glaucoma care. This allows me to follow people for years, both for their general eye health, as well as the more complex issues of glaucoma care. I try to make every patient visit enjoyable and as stress-free as the situation allows. My goal is to not simply address a patient's ocular issues, be it medically or surgically, but their global well-being, as well.
